An excerpt from "Building Roots: A History of My Heart (an ongoing development)
I have always been an artist.
In terms of devotion to expression & creation.
Many times distracted for the purpose of pausing, to learn,
and to understand,
to unlearn and to unravel,
always, to rise again
from a call and a heart so wild,
a force within us all.
There is a score we settle within our individual parameters...each endeavor,
a recovery and ongoing expansion.
of all the delicate crossings,
subtle, lightly brushing,
like the slow sway of hair immersed in water,
pulsing to the whim of every interconnected vibration,
a sound that reaches the frequency of nucleotides and neurons,
Of all these centralized circadian crossfires,
I give into submission,
so you create a space for me,
soft & stern.
There is a score we settle within the energy of our hearts…
