My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the community of Joplin, Missouri. I cant even imagine the sheer terror, and the immense suffering and pain that has hit the town in a matter of seconds. My sweet fellow artist and friend Lisa, who has touched me deeply through her art, words of encouragement and great humor, lives in Joplin. I am so thankful that she and her family are safe. My prayers go up for all of the many communties that have been raveged by the tornadoes and flooding this Spring.
