I'm an artist and a writer, and I alternate between writing and painting. My paintings are abstract landscapes in oil, and I also do mixed-media work. I write mystery-suspense: Letty Valdez Mysteries, and Cat Miranda Mysteries. Sometimes I combine words and images in my artist's books. Learn more and see my art here: http://www.cjshane.com/

Mary Oliver
“Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
Mary Oliver

T.S. Eliot
“If the lost word is lost, if the spent word is spent
If the unheard, unspoken
Word is unspoken, unheard;
Still is the spoken word, the Word unheard,
The Word without a word, the Word within
The world and for the world;
And the light shone in the darkness and
Against the Word the unstilled world still whirled
About the center of the silent Word.

Oh my people, what have I done unto thee.

Where shall the word be found, where shall the word
Resound? Not here, there is not enough silence”
T.S. Eliot

Leonard Cohen
“There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.”
Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968

Voltaire
“Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
Voltaire
