Rich Okun

I spent my professional life in various corporate positions. I was the youngest member of the Art Students’ League of New York, and after many years and diverse careers, I now devote my focus to creative passions. Having lived a lifetime studying many different ancient spiritual belief systems, I was inspired to action when a new little puppy, Maya came to town. I developed a unique format of quote/poem/illustration using Maya as his muse specifically to help children of all ages understand spiritual and moral issues and to closen the relationships within the family. I take storytelling to the next level and these daily meditations can also awaken the child in you.. Rich lives in Connecticut with his wonderful wife, four cats, lots of other animals and Maya. My more current work is not meant for children, but adults and can be seen on my website.
My First book a fully illustrated compilation of little sayings about enormous things titled The Sun, the Moon, the Stars and Maya

It was me all along, and it would only worsen when I..

I wonder what's to become of me. There's a scent in the air, that I clearly see, I smell flowers through the touch of my fingers, and I taste whatever my imagination places in a memory that lingers. My senses have flipped, they're no longer so reliable. I read them differently now, as my world becomes undeniable. https://medium.com/@richokun/whats-to-become-of-me-e0461d7cea56..

In the beginning there was one; and each day, when just begun, maps physical laws at play, that in every turning of the sun, we must all obey. Then there was two, when-along comes a friend, and because I met you, paths entangle to extend. From who you are and, from who you have been, with nothing planned in the journeys you begin. That every friend and each day, marks special in its own way, helps..
