Leaving oneself is a bold act that can not be undone. 2018 marks the beginning of my 8th decade on this planet. I have moved linearly through time—and along that journey I have collided with many folks. Some of these collusions have bruised me; others have strengthened me. All have had some impact on my capacity to understand myself and where I want(ed) to go. Now that I am moving closer to a point in time where there will be no return, I feel an urgency that is stronger than I have ever felt before. My focus on doing art is really just a logical conclusion to the journey so far. The real challenge now is to let go of all the negative impacts of these many and varied collisions and discover new, raw and uncharted places inside my psyche. Finding oneself is even bolder.
