Many thanks for a good personal finale 2019 and a hopeful entry to 2020. Many good wishes to you for the new year.
In my location off the Pacific edge of the world, my personal events have been topped by a wonderful art exhibit at the Zack Gallery, which continues for a week. The Poetry Event relating to this Wings of Imagination exhibit was filled with exuberant poems and so many talented people flying high. The spirit of the event was just magical! What a mix of performance art and poetry it was. Such a flight of light and dark bursts of imagery and imagination together.

The idea behind Wings of Imagination is a big one: it's all about freedom and the human desire to fly, to cross boundaries, go beyond imposed limits. It's inspired by the fact that, across the years, birds have flown into my artwork.They are odd and beautiful creatures, so different from us, yet their essential quality beckons us: they can fly. They serve as messengers to us, as symbols of freedom, of flight across boundaries and limitations that need not, and often should not, be.
As humans who may wish to fly, our actual capacity to do so rests upon our ability to create flying machines… but that's not what's at the heart of it all. When Albert Einstein was asked what attribute was responsible for his amazing mind, he responded: Imagination-- for “Knowledge is limited, but imagination encircles the world”.
