Welcome  

I am a heart attack survivor, stone mason and artist.

After a massive heart attack ten years ago, I started spontaneously drawing the images that wanted to express themselves.   A year later, I went over the images one day at time, and wrote a short commentary about them.   This resulted in a blog that turned into a book that turned into three art shows.    It is now a free e-book on the Web: Heart Attack and Soul.   (The original book is out of print:  I am hoping to get the book published again.)   

Additionally, I run an educational website for heart disease prevention and heart patients, with the motto "Don't assume that everything you have been told is all you need to know:"  

After reviewing the images from the heart attack, the central image was that of a red egg.  I felt I had to make this red egg idea three dimensional, and I started work on a Stone Sanctuary seven years ago, with the central idea of making a meditative chamber, shaped like an egg, to sit in at the center of the Sanctuary. 

In trying to understanding the symbolism of "Why a red egg?"  I came across the story of Mary Magdalene and the Red Egg 

You can go for a walk in the Stone Sanctuary

I hope to complete most of the Sanctuary by the end of the summer of 2018.   

More about the Stone Sanctuary can be found at www.stonecurrents.com.

 

Your patronage is appreciated and will greatly encourage me to keep up the Work...


Thanks from the Heart...
