This journey began as an experiment in expression, another way to put thoughts, ideas, feelings and image out in to the world in tangible form, a way to wrestle with the many tensions and struggles I encounter, and to hopefully inspire further ponderings. From the outset this journey was titled Portrait and a Dream, the significance of which I did not fully realize until some time later.
Portrait can be defined as a likeness of a person as a painting, drawing, photograph or verbal picture or description. Inevitably, the images and words found here in many different mediums will reveal a portrait of who I am. My interests, my struggles, my musings, my humor; all of these will give you a glimpse of my segmented reality.
Dream can be defined as a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep, an involuntary vision occurring to a person when awake, a vision voluntarily indulged in while awake, an aspiration, a wild fancy, or something of an unreal beauty or excellence. This experiment in expression will also reveal those images and experiences that enlighten my imagination and invite the excitement of mystery to this human experience.
At the end of the day, I am just a guy trying to make the most of the blessings that are given and the struggles I encounter.
