"Time Lifted Circumstance" -thoughts behind the painting

“Like splits in a path, fractured and crawling as a web, the choices map my story.” As time passes, my solid memories are dislodged from themselves.  They start to float free in the level of possibilities.

Plate tectonics are real, but no-one can feel the plates shift.  Even the ones in earthquakes can't believe what they experienced was real.   If I went back in time, would I make the same choices...

"Lydia's Gaze"- thoughts behind the painting

 

“Cut open to the Glory. The poignant insides that claim me. The loyalty that erupts. When she looks at me I want to be my best self.”
