...Sometimes mental adjustments don't coincide with the physical adjustments...it seems that our minds and bodies fight each other and we, the flesh, are the all-encompassing audience.
...Hard to be what we don't want or choose to be, through accident or bad health.
...I sometimes feel like ripping out of the human prison, just to be the ME again.... but that's impossible. It's a crime that fond memories of youth and wellness become our whips of punishment and torture when we are older.
...But now, being older we have the gift of wisdom...so we can grab our shadows of youth and walk ourselves down a new path. We must create a different yet mature journey to take ourselves on.
It may not be familiar, but it can still be a great adventure.-Sheila Wolk
I was named Sport Artist of the Year in 1987. American Sport Art Museum and Archives (ASAMA) gave this auspicious award to my soft-edged pastel paintings of the hard action sports .
