“I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”
"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."

What is the process of creating?
We decontextualize. Then, we reconstruct.
Looking past the obvious, close observation and engagement of the subject is my process. The challenge is to see beyond the distraction of the conspicuous to capture its unique self. “The Preparation” is a discovery of beauty in unusual places.
"The truth knocks on the door and you say, "Go away, I'm looking for the truth," and so it goes away. Puzzling."
~Robert M. Pirsig
“The universe is indeed a beautiful place. If you doubt me, go check for yourself.”
~Douglas Copeland, The Gum Thief

“The most beautiful people we have known defeat known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
