"ATHENA’S PRAYER"

"Athena" is the classical goddess, not only of War but also of Wisdom. A modern Athena, just returned from Battle with the enemies of America. Her helmet is held Protecting a heart of female compassion as she looks Heavenward in Prayer. She Symbolizes the feminine “balance” to war. It is designed to beg the enigmatic question of what is her Prayer – the answer to be supplied by the viewer as a catharsis for helping to heal the individual, and very personal, “wounds of war.” This is a tribute to all the women who Served in Americas Armed Forces.

"Mission Dust"

This long day is waning,
with many more to come,
Mission dust lingers...
like a powder-fine shadow
on boots, hands, face and Heart
For when we could not -
when we dare not –
a tear may now be shed;
For the lonely joy and sadness,
disappointments and pain...
For the pride and the Courage

To see it thru’ ...again.
