 “I will poem and paint until I am a cauliflower, for I still look forward to each day.” – Stan Rice

Rice suffered from terminal brain cancer at the end of his life. And he did indeed continue his art – he even asked to be tied upright in his wheelchair so he could continue.  It wasn’t until his hand went numb and he couldn’t hold a paintbrush that he proceeded to his bed. While this may be an uncomfortable image, it reminds me to take time for the art in us everyday.
