I pray that I never send my children mixed messages. “Follow your dreams but…. Be yourself but…..” None of that. I hope that I will have enough freedom so that I may share it unselfishly with the life I bring into the world.

You don’t need a reason to love yourself. Some questions are simply too stupid to merit an answer or explanation.

Artists, speaking from experience, I am willing to bet that you probably wake up every day and go to sleep every night thinking of how far you have to go. Today, consider how far you’ve come. If what you’ve done has brought you any glimmer of happiness, be proud of it. That comes first. Outside, you expose yourself to the elements of doubt, disbelief, shame, and inadequacy. That’s okay. But inside yourself should be a judge-free zone. That’s home. That’s sanctuary.

People ask me who my inspirations are and expect me to drop names of photographers/visual artists. MARCUS. MALCOLM. STOKELY. NINA. THEY keep me doing what I do.
