“The seat of the soul is where the inner world and outer world meet. Where they overlap, it is in every point of the overlap.”


[ As an artist I am working to capture, render and portray dual aspects of poetic intention… ] through visual imagery and the written word.

Robert Bringhurst states, “Poets make things. True enough. But they don’t make poetry, or they don’t make it from nothing. Poetry is present to begin with; it is there, and poets answer it if they can. The poem is a trace of the poet’s joining in knowing. Its one and only use in this world is to honor the gods, the dead, and other nonhumans and humans — to honor being, in other words — and maybe to honor nonbeing as well — by allowing others to join in that knowing.”
