I believe in connectivity. I believe that all of us have more in common than we do not. There is nothing more or less than knowing your own humanity and how it is no different than another’s humanity.
I believe in story. That if we can tell our story we will evoke someone else’s story and the stories will exchange lives in images and a glimpse, but a story none the less.
I am here because I accept that I am a compulsive expressive. (I have yet to find a 12-step group for this!) But I am not the only human being who needs to express themselves. In a song by Ferron she sings about believing most people ache to express themselves. I believe this.
I have loved people who ached and had trouble finding their way. I want to know why. I want things different. I believe that peace begins with me. I am naive and obnoxious all in one.
And, sexuality and the erotic are never severed from love in my world. (When I first typed erotic I typod ertotic and decided: it is a word we can only discuss if you know the cosmic password. I love making up words. Yea!)
