Sandcastles

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.

The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.

The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Matthew 7:24-27 (Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders)

Sistine Chapel

"I have constructed a business that fits me.

It’s kind of crazy to spend your life painting, if you’re painting a subject you don’t want to look at.

I’ve gotten to paint my own painting in business on an unlimited canvas…it’s not work to me, it’s just a form of play.”
