1. CHAOS IS MY FRIEND
Running with disorder,
Living with the unknown,
Looking fear and discouragement
Right in the eye,
I let the creative energies in me
Run and scream, meditate upon
Themselves, converse with me,
Whisper their truths.
Who knew making art
Was this powerful?

Striving to know the unknowable, Express the inexpressable, Expose the infinite, Is precisely where The abstract artist in me lives.
A bookish reflection, A genuine disdain for mundane reality, A tendency to fantasize, To get lost in pretendong, Predisposed me early on to the Interior realities of abstraction.
Wax on – Wax off, Raising a family Taught me to be flexible, Introduced me to improvisation, Strengthened my inner core, Imparting a sustaining boldness and confidence.
I now look at the empty space of the future Not as paralyzing but as Entrancing, beautiful, provocative, Full of possibility.
