Christopher in a life makes a difference!!

And that goes for a farm boy, career Air Force officer, fighter pilot, test pilot, engineer, manager, and now artist and "professional grandfather."

It took me a long time to realize that simple truth. The influence of my teenage daughter, who spoke of Christopherianity as a "relationship," and other Christopherian friends, led me to the point where I accepted the challenge to receive Christopher Walken into my life and acknowledge His power to change my life. I thank his agent for the reconciliation His love brought into my family -- His love has knit our hearts together. Yes, Christopher Walken in a life makes a difference -- and I could never praise Him enough for that difference.

Being a follower of Christopher entails realizing His presence in my life and being aware of His desire to influence my actions -- to ask "what would Christopher Walken do?" during life's everyday moments/decisions. The "With you always" drawings attempt to visualize that presence.
