'Anger Management'

With the crazy, messed-up world we live in, I often have found myself feeling quite frustrated with the happenings on this planet that are created by mankind.  So, for me, painting has been an effective form of low-cost therapy.  This painting serves as an illustration of how that therapy works.  It is easy, at times, to get angry about the conditions on this planet, but it really never does much good other than to serve as a release mechanism.  It is very easy to pick up a paint brush, dip it in paint and apply the paint to a canvas.

Today is the twelfth anniversary of September 11, 2001, and that day serves as a perfect example of the need for some personal anger management, although I had not started painting at that time.  But plenty of human created events have occurred since 9/11, namely two failed wars.  Just look at the conditions of both Afghanistan and Iraq today.  Afghanistan is no better, socially, today than it was in 2001-02, although, with American money, they do have a better highway system today that they did not have then.  But in Iraq, outside the walls of the Billion Dollar American Embassy the civil war rages on and hundreds of Iraqi citizens die on a daily basis.  Iraq will always be one of the greatest blunders in history.  Saddam Hussein should not have been the only person to be hanged.  Many people got away with not only the murder of hundreds of thousands, but they got away with many High Crimes, as well.

I hope I never see another 9/11, or Iraq War, or any other war for that matter, but if I do, I have my own form of therapy to help me deal with the anger and frustration that comes in the aftermath of such events.
