What not my Love?

What is important today is that artists continue to create narratives about the "what for &  what of" supporting imagination and creative expression in the midst of unparalleled opportunities which often compromise each other.  Art from the heart is critical in this exploit of sustainable activism when commercial realities profane so much sacred ground. Welcome to the interior critique of post-modernism.

One with his spirit, intertwined with his soul,

The master of my own destiny with the knowledge to know,

That through Christ I stand here all naked and clothed,

With the innocence of… Continue
