me...

Continuing on from the last post...even though we are still in the middle of this burning summer, i really feel the need for renewal, cleansing of the soul, of my life, change - I have been thinking about my art, what i really want to do.. and I am trying to find more direction, more structure I think - anyway with all this contemplating I wanted to join Abigail and Marieke and make a list of my loves in life...who I am..

    it's amazing
    how a string of words
    can tell you
    so much about
    a person.
