How does one speak of something that is beyond words? When words fail to impart the gravity of something one has seen or experienced?
I make art.
I dream. Of helping children get a brilliant education so they can make a difference in our world. Of partnering with communities in the fulfillment of environmentally conscious spaces for public enjoyment and as a model for practices that are in harmony with a world that requires balance and restoration. Of imparting esteem and partnering with the elderly to fulfill a dream.
And so I make art and speak.
"Emerge From The Earth" is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. All profits from Mandaravas Journey will be donated to Fractured Atlas: Emerge From The Earth.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
The next part of Mandaravas Journey. His experiences when he returns to his tribe and his life as a slave. We will discover that in his transformation he is perceived by others in a new way. He experiences the mundane as Sacred. Mandarava will have opportunity to be a companion to one who is a danger to themself and others.|
Also in the works is a seven year retrospect of my creative work and a book about beads and what one can learn from them.
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
|Joseph Campbell, Henry David Thoreau, Kahlil Gibran, Gandhi. Follow the trail. These people are a great place to start! Every visual artist teaches and inspires in some way-Go. Go now and look at some art!|
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|The Lotus Sutra. The Diamond Sutra. The Bible, The Gnostic Gospels. "Blessed Unrest" by Paul Hawken. -"Emerge From The Earth" required reading! "Walden" and "Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau. "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran. Herodotus.|
