I don’t know whether this is dissolving or forming, but it certainly feels very alive – which represents perfectly my present state of frequently being unable to differentiate between the two

“Nothing is ever really lost, or can be lost,
No birth, identity, form – no object of the world,
Nor life force, nor any visible thing;
Appearance must not foil, nor shifted sphere confuse thy brain.
Ample are space and time – ample the fields of Nature.
The body, sluggish aged, cold – the embers left from earlier fires,
The light in the eye grown dim, shall duly flame again;
The sun now low in the west rises for mornings and for noons continual;
To frozen clods ever the spring’s invisible law returns,
With grass and flowers and summer fruits and corn.” Walt Whitman

*Life goes on…in the midst of death we are in life. What is essential in you can never die. All is in its place and as it should be…

Our love for each other lives on, at least – and that is enough for me…*

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!
