I am a spy in the house of me. I report back from the front lines of the battle that is me. I am somewhat nonplused by the event that is my life.
I have to say that I reject somewhat the distinction between something called art and something called public art. I think all art demands and desires to be seen.

Man, I'm a conspiracy theorist by nature. You can't experience the federal penal system and not be somewhat skeptical.
Each black hole spins on its axis like the Earth spins. That spin creates two vortexes of twisting space, somewhat like vortexes in a bathtub or a whirlpool.
I'd like to be settled into somewhat of a normal life. Somewhat. I know it's never going to be completely normal.

James A. Baldwin
