The Black Madonna & Obama

Title:The Black Madonna and Obama
Artist: Judy Vars
Medium: Oil
Size: 16" X 20"
Price: 500.00

With some Grandmother energy in the Whitehouse this icon takes on a whole new layer.

My next veneration/icon is going to be for St Jude the patron saint of desperate and hopeless cases. This saint interceeded for me once-upon-a-time, but that makes another story.

I am reeling from some sad news about a friend 54 years old a hospice nurse and a wonderful and compassionate human being. Her and her partners cabin style house house caught on fire while the other was at work. She was burned externally and internally in addition to smoke inhalation, and was in critical condition the life flighted her to Seattle where she died shortly thereafter. That same week two little boys were home alone while mom was working and their house caught fire. Two men passing by saved one boy the other brother was killed.

It is so easy to have a house fire in the winter months when the temperature is -20 and so devastating to the families and friends of its victims. Please check the smoke detectors, lint in the dryer, be careful with those fireplaces, wood stoves and candles.

Dar we love you! this community has lost a beautiful soul. All of us your friends, family and especially your partner we will miss you till the end of our days.

i am so so sad to hear about your friend's deepest sympathies to her entire community - i have a feeling she was very much loved and her death will be felt by many.

Oh that is so very sad. I will keep her in my thoughts as well as the people involved in the other fire.
Keep warm, be safe. xp

I lost a dearest friend too - a wonderful person and like a brother. He was only 40. So I understand.
Take care
