All is abstract and all is realism, so where’s the rub? …. To sit and watch the sea, or the sands of time, waiting and dreaming. Is that it? Perhaps, the next wind will bring me to it, or it to me….. How do I know? The color, the form, the space, wet or dry, perhaps the smell and yes, the symbol, and most importantly the mystery! We find each other in ecstasy or in fear or in dreams or even in laughter.….. But neither should run away, the meeting is holy, there is shyness and force, do not be too quick to judge….. listen and listen again and watch…… Message and mystery without necessarily having identity or answers.…. It just is, and perhaps.….
