New Worlds...

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world not possibly born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

I love you madly, deeply, with my whole being. Thank you giving me this world and letting me share mine.

Friday night I hosted an evening of Art, Music, Dance, Fire and Circus Arts Performance. We celebrated life, embodied new transitions, collaborated, and expanded our art community until 3 am. Sculptors, Painters, African drummers, Acrobatic Performers, professional dancers, Hoopers, Fire performers and musicians all came together sharing gifts, insights and talents. Thank You for my Bangkok Send off.

The Map is not the territory. SXSW.

This is before the lasers, fog machines, film projection, and layered beats of the Black Pig Liberation Project on a 45-foot stage for SXSW. The music video on DVD will be out soon. My mind was expanded as we discussed theories of representation, space theory, Brian Eno, and  substance over image. I plan to be meeting the band and dancing for their European tour this Summer. More details to come.
