Once in a while I get an eEmail from a kind stranger who bought a copy of the Little Inspiration Book and o discovered something valuble in it and/or got inspired and wanted to connect with me out of appreciation for putting it out there. Michael Mercy, living near Toronto, ON, both an actor and writer, currently working on a series of poems sent me this beautiful poem that I wanted to share with you here on my blog. Michael - Thank you! You can check out Michael's work at: www.warriorpoetwisdom.com.
Random Poem of Kindness
Hi again, my artist friend
It seems it’s been a while
So I just thought I’d send you this
In hopes it brings a smile
I stumbled on your little book
While going through my shelf
And leafed through it and after a
Few pages thought to self:
“I should send this beautiful soul
A note that will remind
Of what an inspiration that
She is and just how kind
And caring and selfless one has
To be to write such text
To help others survive their day
And have strength for the next"
So for all those who drew strength from
Your pages, let me say
Thanks for inspiration, sister
And for you, I pray
The same strength, grace and love to be
Returned to you in spades
I hope your inspiration for
Helping all never fades :)

- 1 nail (any)
- wire cutters
- measuring tape
- 2 small D-rings (size them to your painting edge)
- 2 small screws (OPUS code STPOLY 6)
- Woven picture wire – 4 feet in length
- 4 small clear round bumpers
- Phillips screw driver or Electric screw driver
Step 1. Measure the side of your panel and mark, with a pencil, the place 1/3 down from the top
Step 2. Place the D-ring in its final spot, flat and use your Hammer and nail to make a small hole/dent in preparation for the screw and D-ring.
Step 3. Place the D-ring down on it’s flat/flush side, put screw through it and insert the screw into the wood using your Phillips screw driver or electric. Repeat on other side of panel.
Step 4. Cut the length of wire you need for the panel plus 2 “ extra for each side.
Step 5. Loop the wire through the D-ring once, twice, three times and then back through the loop. Pull tight. Take remaining wire and wrap around itself towards the center of the panel.
Step 5. Pull the wire tight to the other side and repeat the loop knot.
NOTE: You want the wire to tight so that your painting will hug the wall and hang straight.
Step 6. Place the plastic bumper on each four corners of your panel. These help with the painting so that it hugs the wall evenly.
