why the moon

why the moon?
even when I was alone.
I never felt lonely.
I knew that when I looked up
she was there.

I remember sitting in a hotel room
missing her so much.
but I knew the moon I saw out my window
saw her too.

I felt warm.

“Dear Father” painting and video

September 11th is my Dads birthday
Around 3 am instead of sleeping I I found myself writing a story in my head.
This isn’t something unusual for me.
99 times out of 100 though I’ll tell myself “I don’t need to write this down , I’ll remember it in the morning.
I never do .
This time though ,
I got up and wrote down my idea.
A “poem” to my father early in the morning on the day of his birth.
and an idea for the movie.
close to 24 hours later at 4 am on sept 12 this movie was finished.
and 12 hours later its uploaded to the interweb to share with everyone .

A few weeks ago I had this dream….
A woman came up to me and told me I only had 2 weeks to live.
I sat down and started to write these loving letters to everyone important in my life.
I knew I wanted to paint something from that dream , and this is it.
She was so beautiful, She told me the news with tears in her eyes.
She said she loves me and there would be no more cries.
I haven’t painted a picture in over a week.
I’m happy I waited to paint this image.
I’m also happy to say I didn’t die.

“I’d bring her the setting sun” painting and video

“I’d bring her the setting sun”

tj schneider,

Dear love
I know you feel like
I left you behind
but I want you
to know I sit
here and think of
you, I remember
all the days you
would smile
all the times
you told me “I LOVE YOU”
How I miss your
How I wish
this portrait
was me
how I wish we
had our child
and you would
take care of me
my babe
babe, I love you.
please come
please I need
my sun ….
( I can’t read the rest)
He swore
but I watched her
walk away
wishing as he wept
I swear I would have
brought you the setting sun
I would have ran it
back to that porch
where you’d be waiting
I’d tell you I love you
and show you the holes
in my heart
lost lover.
