  • It’s easier for me to tell stories of my life experiences when they are in the five-sensory world where we have some level of shared agreement on what the world is, how things look, smell, feel… Where we have some shared agreement on how time works, what boundaries exist, who we (think we) are…

    It’s much more difficult to figure out how to tell the stories of my experiences as an artist where, for the most part, the experiences feel singular – in worldly or human terms.

    At the same time, I know – without doubt – that the experiences are as collective as any I can imagine. I am acutely aware of 'The Universe' reaching in with Its gifts of pure potential when I surrender and open myself.

    In other words, I am aware of the process of Co-Creation… where I actively and consciously listen for what wants to emerge next, where I receive unexplainable ideas and information beyond any I might have 'thought up' or planned, where time is of an entirely different order – both in the moment (as in timeless) and beyond worldly time (as in patience and timing).
