It doesn’t matter who my father was;

it matters who I remember he was.

Success is to be measured

not so much by the position

 that one has reached in life

as by the obstacles which he has overcome

 while trying to succeed.

Its not the flesh nor the blood 

of a man,

but
 his

heart

 which makes a man
a

 Father

– a man whose presence is

LOVE

to his own and to others.

DR. MARK B. COVENTRY, MY TEMPLATE OF CHARACTER + GRACE; CATHERINE L. JOHNSON;
DR. MARK B. COVENTRY
 
MY
TEMPLATE
OF

CHARACTER + CREATIVE GENIUS

 COURAGE + COMPASSION + GRACE

HE WAS MY ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON
– a creative GENIUS at the Mayo Clinic –
ONCE I LEFT SHRINERS
AT 3 YEARS OLD.

X

WE “COLLABORATED” ON MY SURGERIES
UNTIL HE RETIRED.
Our relationship did NOT end there
– it began to bloom its own bloom.

He BELIEVED in me.

X

He taught me HOW to PREVAIL with INTEGRITY.

HE WAS MY CONFIDANTE.

Dr. Coventry asked me to make two promises to him before he died:

“Promise me TWO things.

ONLY

let those who honor + respect you come near

+

ALWAYS

 remain an artist!”

 
PLEASE NOTE:
THE RED CIRCLE BEATS
RHYTHMICALLY LIKE A

HEART BEAT.

THE IMAGERY IS A PATH, A PULSE.
  WHEN THE IMAGE UNFOLDS or VANISHES,
THE

MEMORY OF THE IMAGE GLOWS

– LIKE AUTHENTIC LOVE

WHICH TIME + SPACE CAN

NEVER

SEVER.

IMPRINTED + EMBEDDED

FOREVER.
