THE OBAMA PAINTINGS
by JOHN COOPER
AN EXPLAINATION OF FAITH
It's apparent that I still think we have a choice think as we do.Faith that we do.
I maybe naive for retaining hope,and believing the future can remain good, that
my spirit counts and my FEELINGS still count. BUT,
If I don't beleive in myself, I cease to count. IF I COUNT, I retain my dignity and can
continue to be USE FULL to civilization. If I loose my dignity, I may become spirit dead, I may
become Evil or Wickedness . I may become a liability.
We are a species of spirit, and our spirit is low. We have endured much toxic effect of
this Bushism era: it fouls every well, not just it's own, turning hope into Gallows when it
should be a Lighthouse.
I think faith and hope don't have to be blind.!
As artists we project our feelings. Each little bit I can escape the foul well is some score
for the spirit side. May my net value be toward sustainable comfort, and good-will for
the breathing and living? May- be even happiness!
May we experience anew, a wellspring of goodwill this holiday Season.
Very Best Wishes,
