Visual artists...have a peculiar ability - and therefore, whether they like it or not, a responsibility - to draw attention to that elusive thing we call reality, which may, when fused with fantasy and personal obsession, bring forth something that can be recognised as art - Norman Rosenthal, curator.
Leo Tolstoy said "As there are as many minds as there are heads, so there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts."
I add to that my own vision, which is: As there are as many minds as there are heads, so there are as many ways to change the world.
We are all capable of making our existence palpable, of changing the world one person at a time, poem by poem, painting by painting, story by story, hand by hand, one voice at a time.
I've begun. Have you?
