Tree of Life

Captain Glen Baxby is entering the province of Quebec on his bike trek across Canada.This mammoth feat is in recognition of a fellow pilot stricken with cancer. Not only is the distance involved amazing, but it's being done by a 48 year old who's only previous experience with a bike  was that it had two wheels.

In order to raise funds for cancer research, an artist Cristina Lovisa gratuitously donated this painting which can be bid on eBay. I love the quote etched into the canvass  painting, Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us, our bodies are only wilted leaves on the TREE OF LIFE- Albert Einstein. Maybe my assimilation with trees has to do with the fact I have nearly 400,000 of them growing in B.C because of my tree planting days. What a person has to do to become a pilot!

Presently, I'm the top bidder. Anyone out there want to up the ante?

Paintings and drawings (especially
abstract ones) are glimpses into
someone's mind.

I guess it is a form of mind
