As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course. ― Martin Luther King Jr.
If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way ― Martin Luther King Jr.
It's a three-day weekend for most of us here in the USA to honor Martin Luther King jr. I am grateful for the advances MLK made to give voice to those who did not have one and for his pursuit of equal opportunity for all.

On a side note: my latest linocut is of a sitting male figure. I printed this on rice paper in orange. I really like how the rice paper picks up the ink and groves of the linocut and prefer the rice paper to other printing papers.
