My premise, and the only one available to me, is that I can accomplish something authentic with my art, and incorporate the writing and thinking under normal, even not favorable conditions. Using what I know, even though training and practice was incomplete, something special I believe and hope can emerge out of daily life. Choices, heartache, stresses, aggravation are handled everyday as with everyone. Funds and help remain limited. So good has to come out of what is average.
This effort all fits into the larger concept of my beliefs which is always being tested. If it is true, and all I do fits into it, it should lead to somewhere that is positive.
