The painting,"The Beginnings of Caution", is better. It is witness to my awaking, it is in the midst of invention of a strategy that will allow me to be more me. All I really want to do is be kind to myself; be real, authentic, don't shy from truths so bold as to be frightening. Call this me becoming “woke." In truth, it ain't easy being oneself. Being oneself is being different from everyone else; it is being different than everything that has come before. Getting woke is difficult because the more you know the more truth and lies you have witnessed. My job is to weed out the lies I have been told, then visually invent the world with truths only, the ones I know are true to the core that is only me.
