Gratitude Too
Hello all,
It’s been some time since I’ve posted here.

Batik 1Here’s the first post
of another new series that I’m calling Batik.
It’s taken a lifetime to let myself go and see what happens.
It’s also taken as long to understand that creativity is an everlasting
process; even when we’re dormant, think we’re doing nothing,
our creativity is busy processing.

The  recent loss of power by so many of us
in the Northeast has fed right into my persistent belief
–and the premise of my Phantoms series—that we are perilously too
reliant on technology in order to communicate on the most basic level.
