PAINTING STUDIO Fathers Day Letter To Dad And More by Stephen Craig Rowe Published on Windows Live Spaces 2009

Dad,  Can’t believe it has nearly been a year since….Yeah, I know time flys when time flys and you are playing poker with the Saints, bitching about the Packers and whispering in the winds.  I think about you all the time and talk to you every day.  You know this and sometimes I feel your closeness.  My son Adam is in the US Army and is planning on visiting before his deployment.  Other than that things are still pretty messed up.  You would not believe that the taxpayers recently had to bail out some major banks and GM because some idiots in the private sector were greedy and stupid.  Am sure you would agree that the failed auto industry should have gone begging to big oil for a bail out instead of the tax base.  Just another case of stupid is as stupid does.  Speaking of stupid some folks here in America are blowing off the tops of mountains to mine coal.  Just the thought of it makes me ill.  Oh yes,  The Supreme Leader of the theocratic nation of Iran has told the people that the recent elections there were fair and not fixed in favor of Mahmoud Ahmedinejad.  May God grant the will of the people of Iran to overcome this farce and wipe the silly grin from Ahemdinejad’s face and dump the "Supreme Leader" back into the stone age.  Enough of that stuff.  I am fine, in good spirits and dealing with my cancer thing and am planning on making some new paintings soon.  The family is all well, good and misses you very much.  Dad, you are in our thoughts and prayers each and every day, as we are in yours.  Love you more than words can tell.  Happy Fathers Day to you and to all.
As ever be well,
Stephen Craig Rowe

Tears In Heaven

by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven.

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I’ll find my way
Through night and day,
‘Cause I know I just can’t stay
Here in heaven.

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please, begging please.

Beyond the door,
There’s peace I’m sure,
And I know there’ll be no more
Tears in heaven.

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven.

    So moving, I cried. It’s a tough deal to live up to expectations and be who you set out to be, when the world seems to be crumbling around us. Have courage and enjoy father’s day this weekend.
