It is my sincere intention to keep this blog updated.  Though a useful way of keeping in touch & making connections, I also see it as an opportunity to articulate my process & ideas (to an audience, yes - but mostly to myself).  Purposefully articulating thoughts is quite satisfying - & there is something very compelling about publishing them for my peers to see.  Perhaps I will hold on to my thoughts & plans with more conviction if I write them here. 

A good friend sent me this poem about two years ago & I love it.  It seems like a nice place to start. Cheers.

First Memory  

Long ago, I was wounded. I lived

to revenge myself

against my father, not

for what he was -

for what I was: from the beginning of time,

in childhood, I thought

that pain meant

I was not loved.

It meant I loved.
