On the road to find out

My children and I are in Louisville Kentucky, we are here to learn more about 7q11.23 duplication syndrome it is a developmental disorder resulting from an extra copy of ~25 genes on the long arm of chromosome 7. Individuals who have 7q11.23 duplication syndrome have 3 copies of the genes in this region. We found out my oldest daughter has this duplication back in early January. We had spent the past two years in and out of doctors offices trying to understand what was going on with her and if she would ever be herself again.
We are here having an adventure, we arrived on the heals of a huge storm system that took down trees everywhere as well as the power through out the city. But there was a crazy beautiful rainbow just as drove into downtown, I think its a good omen.

Life is often tumultuous we never know what is ahead of us but we keep trying to learn and enjoy each other as much as we can..

Here is one of the only abstract pieces of art I ever made, it was a commission for a spiritual center in a local college. It is named sustainable peace.

Embrace sustainable peace as love begets love begets love begets love..
(In remembrance of a sweet poet and in gratitude for a dear friend)
