art & artistry & philosophy & inspiration & whimsy & wonder & nature

The archetype of the eternal wanderer (hero with a thousand faces?) is an image that has often cropped up in my work. I call him (or her) Eus ("Ay-us") which comes from one of the earliest prefixes in the Greek language (as in euphony, etc.). 

Eastern literature abounds with the character of the pilgrim or wandering sage (5 Songs, Zen Tales, Eternal Laughter) and the paintings in my Medicine Angel series are also the journey of 

the wounded healer, the eternal pilgrim, you and me.
