I go to con­certs, spo­ken word, gal­leries, muse­ums to expand the ques­tions and pos­si­bil­i­ties for my own art. I make con­nec­tions when I am in the midst of art. And I feel. Where there was noth­ing hap­pen­ing for me artis­ti­cally, there is sud­denly a lot. Beauty begets beauty. We went to a party for a friend. One of her gifts was three friends doing a dance for her. I loved how open and gen­er­ous it was. I took pictures.

Yes­ter­day our son, was born. Beauty and love so over­whelm­ing I lost my breath. His first gift for me. I felt walls in me wash­ing away and floods rolling through me. I lost my breath and then he brought me more. Breath and beauty together: inspiration.
