Far and Free From View

I am far, far from being the person I hope to be. I do not love nearly enough, I am not honest in all I do, I am not as kind as I could be. I try but often fail to live up to those things I hold dear. I am human, and in this I hold a part of myself free from view, despite placing great value on being open.

In my making I can be honest, kind, open, and love, without restraint.

Creating art in any form gives chance to share those principles I aspire to, and to live during my making with these qualities that ignite my heart and mind.
