all around the same poem but with different visual themes
for each. The two on this page were drawn completely
digitally, freehand in Adobe Photoshop.

Life is here and only now.

There is no guarantee that
Your years will span three score and ten.
Nor surety of long range plans fulfilled–

Life is here and only now.

The two on the opposite page were made primarily with
traditional media, the “Life” illustration drawn with
charcoal and coloured pencils.
Doves in the second picture opposite are composed with
the text of the poem, repeated as necessary to create an
illusion of a dove. The background, however, was painted
on canvas with acrylic and photographed.

Life is not filled with spectacular events

Nor does it come wrapped in pretty packages
Or extended vacations in exotic locales– Life is here and only now.
There is no guarantee that your years will span three score and ten.
Nor surety of long range plans fulfilled–
Life is here and only now.

Nights turn on days, and seasons run through years

But how one particular day will be? Life is here and only now.
Babies grow from children into adult and into their own
But the length of relationship?
Life is here and only now.

Nights turn on days
And seasons run through years
But how one particular day will be?
Life is here and only now.
Babies grow from children
Into adult and into their own
But the length of relationship?
Life is here and only now
Moments are what we have to live and share
Yes to plan for the future.
But to live as if there were none
Enjoying all that God has given
So as not to miss what has always been
A groaning creation waiting for an imminent return.

Enjoying all that God has given
So as not to miss what has always been
A groaning creation waiting for an imminent return.
Tears, stream down and hands reach for
What is so seldom given:
A life wrapped in moment living
And never deaf to sorrow nor blind to love–

For life is here and only now.
