The “We”

There is something about the American over-identification with individualism which is inseparable from a quality of owning and having which collectively has frozen the nation into a nation of “I,” that cuts one another off forever from the “we.”’. It contributes to an intensification of a focus on identity politics. Groups of people have been treated unfairly and a more just goal might be one of pursuing equality for all and not in a way that pits one group against the other. This is the advantage of a perspective that is more of the”we”.

I find some satisfaction in the act of attempting to express my experience of life through painting, writing, language and other art forms. I have been painting for over thirty five years and combine my love of art with a meditative and contemplative way of life. I have an intuitive sense that true creativity is something that arises from beyond and through Qthe self that can be explored and shared through some form of expression although I always hope to open to the influence of that which is beyond my limited sense of self.
