About

Hello and welcome!

I am creating a clear path forward. This is my intention, my work, and the path itself. I have encountered many obstacles on the path of my life and have learned to look upon them as opportunities instead. Many of the obstacles I encounter stand between me and creating artwork. As I clear the path I will deposit the artwork here.

I have struggled my entire life with the dynamic of the double bind, a complex imprint which often arises from developmental trauma. I have learned a lot about this dynamic - how it arises, how it is imprinted in the nervous system, the long term implications of this imprint, and even how to transcend the dynamic altogether.

The obstacle is the path!

Moving through life on a path as strewn with dynamic obstacles as mine has been, I have learned to embrace the obstacle as the path itself. Only when I surrender resistance does the obstacle yield its treasure. This, then, is how I am creating a clear path forward: by embodying a stance of surrender to obstacles as a way of life.

What's in it for you?

I continue to find the creative process to be a helpful companion on an obstacle strewn path. The process of creating a clear path forward generates artifacts - this is the artwork I mentioned above. Some of these artifacts are written, some are recordings of sound and/or compositions of music, some emerge as images from the tips of pencils and pens, and some are photographic. I am hopeful that a cinematic artifact will eventually emerge. This page is going to be a clearinghouse for all of these artifacts. The path forward I am intending to create is not for myself alone - my intention is to create a clear path forward which is broad enough for us all to travel on together.

How can you support me? Let me count the ways...

The primary support you can provide me with is simply to receive what I have on offer. Read what I have written, listen to what I have recorded, see what I have made. If you like it, if you think it might help someone, if you think it might bring someone joy, or peace, or clarity - please share it with them. If you find that what I provide is of value, please become a Patron!
