- Happiness from Masterpiece to Masterpeace
This unique masterpiece was created to pave away sadness and emptiness due to life's tremendous drama. Finished on a canvas, this work of art gives me great pleasure-that joyful face and glorious silent voice that says, life is short. Enjoy it.

Recommended reads for the New Year:
In the stillness of the night,
In the four-corners of my room,
I caught myself smiling while packing up again,
Looking back at the happy memories of days gone by,
Here comes New Year, unfolding new horizons.
Memories of years gone by,
Why am I still holding on to you?
Oh 2012, the things I love, the things you are,
Many a thing, I never want to lose,
This wandering soul is longing for more.
But this 2012 must come to an end,
The craziness must end as well,
Take the pain and shadows of gray,
The shards of frost on winter nights.
And the creepy faces staring blank.
Oh 2013, be gentle to me
Set my mind to peace while I travel to places.
I only need a pen then I can breathe,
Jot my thoughts to set myself free,
Sprinkle with grace my words on outer space.
Oh 2013, come without a race,
And give me some space enough to breathe,
Let me travel with hope and help me cope in my return,
And while I pause in the march of the universe,
Bless me with strength not to go astray.
Here comes the passage of another twelve-months.
On the stroke of midnight, cast your reformation,
Togetherness, I ask. Speak of the truth.
Let me gird myself once more and set my spirit high,
Hello 2013, come fly with me good!
Sing with me:
Quick facts about the song:
"Auld Lang Syne" - a poem written by a Scottish poet, Robert Burns in 1788. Set to the tune of a traditional folk song, the Scots would sing the song in New Year's Eve, which very quickly became a Scottish custom. Accordingly, as Scots traveled and immigrated around the world, they took the song with them and made it famous particularly in the English speaking countries. It has since become a trademark song to celebrate the start of the New Year.
The phrase “Auld Lang Syne” in Scots means "old long since" or more idiomatically, “long long ago” or “days gone by”.
