Sunday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
Who is your favorite artist?
A poet? Fashion designer? Artist? Jeweler?
Who is your favorite artist and what does he/she create?

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

God is my favourite artist; in particular, for the wonderful sunrises and sunsets He creates. A little closer to home, I have several very artistic friends: two who create beautiful paintings, one is a graphic arts designer, one is a cake decorator, and one makes beautiful cards and other paper creations.

I am also one of my "favourite" designers! I create tile coasters as well as jewelry and I love to play to discover new techniques. I admire people who have natural gifts, as I have to work very hard to be "creative", but I also admire those who try out all sorts of stuff, and just have fun!!

Good question Dani!

I too am a big fan of Thomas Kinkade, he has a super neat Art Gallery in his home town of Placerville California. Other artist I like are M. C. Escher, it is hard to describe his art work so just google "artist escher". The other artist that I really really like is Rene Magritte  again google his name and check out his works it is just fantastic! And lastly is Salvador Dali what can I say I just think these artist are Great!

I like Escher too. He's wild!
Salvador Dali's melted watches is so unusual.
I do love the peace in a Kinkade.
Magritte does alot of things like Dali. Very striking!

I love poetry of all kinds....so I have many poets that I like! So to pick a favorite...I will just have to select my favorite poem which is "The Invitation" and it was written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. She has some other great poems, also.

WhiteBeard I am glad that I went ahead and did what you said and googled M. C. Escher. Wow!! He is my type of artist. I go to this amateur art site called Elfwood...which is Science Fiction and Fantasy art....there is a lot of talented artists there!

Take care all!
