  • "Only One Chance" at JKR Gallery

    Funny how we are continually being recycled into soil at our base biology, be it with our breath or our poop. The longer I am alive, see the turning of the seasons, watch the rise and fall of fellow terrestrials, watch movements evolve and dissolve, see children transform and parents dissolve, I see the cyclical nature of our very existence. Anything stable is just one moment, one encounter. The circumstances in that one moment will never arise, just like it again.

  • 7 BRAVING steps to Being the Light

    ...be courageous and have intimate conversations with people with different points of view. Reach out to family members, community members, and friends and have vulnerable discussions. Be willing to go into the fire and listen with an open heart. Be loving to yourself, as you feel your defensiveness and fear arise. (Know that no feeling is permanent and use that to stabilize your emotional responses.) Let go of shame in what has come before and recommit to a new future. Look for common ground, our shared ideals.  Look for the better angels.
  • Mind the Gap: Creating Art in 2020

    While our experience of 2020 has been our unique storms in our individual bottles, we have all shared the struggle to feel safe. How does an artist step into the gap between what collectors want and and an artist needs? How to make art that will allow one to earn a living, provide inspiration, and encourage others to think about what they believe they know? What are my obligations as an artist? Can I live with myself if I chose safety over truth? I am most certainly butting up against ages-old questions.
  • Living the Questions

    It reminds me of that line from Rainer Maria Rilke, “Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” 
  • Kindness is Our Superpower

    Kindness. Kindness is in me. It’s nothing I’ve lost.  I carry it. I carry it in me. I can share my garden. I can leave flowers for the neighbor. I can donate to “No Kid Hungry.” I can be a witnessing ear to my friend’s woes.  I can say a kind word to a Facebook friend, with whom I don’t agree. I can feed a stray cat, pay for a stranger’s bus fare. I can vote. We are not surrounded by kindness, kindness is in us. It is our superpower.

  • Rethinking Self Love

    “Once we remove the obstruction that has us believe, we have to try to become, we will just become... exactly what it is we are suppose to be. And those obstructions are not just our obstructions, they are a world of obstructions that have been created, that are in between us and our inherent divinity, in between us and our innate “enough-ness...”

  • Living Like Fish

    How are you? I mean really how are you?  It’s a very strange time.  Some of us believe there is a virus, others think it‘s a conspiracy... Some believe masks must be mandated, others believe their freedom is being trampled if asked to don one. Regardless of what you believe, I think we can all agree its a strange time, steeped in not knowing, steeped in separateness and disconnection.  Though we are standing beside each other, we surround ourselves with likeminded people on social media, we often unfriend people with whom we disagree.  We are truly living in bubbles - both physically and ideologically.
