"...And on the autumn blows, when the colour of your greatest bruises are back in season, when the scars from old love re-open and weep, when childish tinkle-bells of happiness ring through from the lost of time, I am compelled to write because this is the parallel universe of which I inhabit and in which I see the flawed and tragic beauty of this world." --Shane Levine

This is a painting by Randa Reiger. Her beautiful son August went missing in June. He disappeared while hiking with his family in Ecuador. I was very familiar with the story as it dominated OKC media last summer, but when a tweet targeted at my Twitter account alerted me to these paintings, I saw the story and loss in a whole new light. I was stunned by the emotion, pain and longing of mother AND THE CHILD! I know my Google+ community far and wide cares about this. I think these paintings will bring August home. We have to believe, right? Here is more: http://www.jenx67.com/2013/11/august-reiger.html

From Keillor:
"...All who have loved shall be forever young
And walk in grandeur on a cool fall night
Along the avenue,
They live in every song that is ever sung,
In every painting of pure light,
In every pas de deux..."

Introduction
         
         
 
I am an American mother and writer. My blog is jenx67.com. I write about generations (especially mine, Generations X) as well as life experiences and lessons learned. I also love to take pictures.

My radio commentaries (JenX) air on KOSU Radio every Tuesday around 7:35 a.m. Listen live via KOSU.org. If you're in OKC, tune into 91.7 or in Tulsa, 107.5.

My career is in public relations. I'm an accredited PR Practitioner, and professional advocate for arts, culture and arts education. I serve as Executive Director of Oklahomans for the Arts, a nonprofit advocacy organization. I also provide part-time PR consulting and executive coaching.
