I don't believe we can know who we are without re-discovering those people who had a lot to do with who we were, and who we became.

In 2005, I found a treasure in an old cardboard box. A collection of poetry written by myself and my friends 35 years ago when we had the good fortune to be young in Berkeley in the Halcyon days. Many of them I illustrated. I'm delighted to publish these poems, and art finally - and to add to the mix over 30 years of poems that reflect the journey since. Joanna, Felicia, thank you. For me, you will always be 22, or 23.

Wherever you are, we were beautiful.

I've been a visionary artist for over 30 years, specializing in community art projects, sacred masks, and visionary arts. I also teach the Art of the Mask. In 2007 I had a fellowship at the Alden Dow Creativity Center to pursue my community arts project "The Hands of the Spider Woman", based upon the Native American legend; in 2009 I will be continuing the project at the Henry Luce Center at Wesley Theological University. May we all become "Beautiful Weavers".
