i am reminded by a quote by jfk to robert frost:
"if art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him. we must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth… in free society art is not a weapon and it does not belong to the spheres of polemic and ideology. artists are not engineers of the soul. it may be different elsewhere. but democratic society — in it, the highest duty of the writer, the composer, the artist is to remain true to himself and to let the chips fall where they may. in serving his vision of the truth, the artist best serves his nation."
i was born with a vision for the infinite & resplendent possibility of this life and how we live it together. my dream is to create work that realizes our inherent unity. i am blessed to be supported in my path by innumerable patrons who have invested in helping me bring forth my vision. i am evergreen with gratitude.
in our rapidly changing environment, i’m looking for authentic ways to craft the lifestyle that is most conducive for prolific creation. i’m scaling up the vision i want to bring to the world and you can help.
we all have gifts capable of elevating each other. is your cup overflowing? in what weird & wonderful ways can we collaborate to bring our dreams to life? send your wildest ideas my way. through the sharing of financial and (equally important & empowering) non-financial resources your support becomes a fundamental element of creation. when we are aligned we are unstoppable.
love all ways,

a compact reliable car: helps move and keep my gear safe and dry, particularly during monsoon
