Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Deepest heartfelt appreciation to everyone who has ever had a kind thought or undertaken a generous action on my behalf or on the behalf of anyone I have ever cared for. You and the cosmos know who you are.
A handful of people have had a direct and profound influence on my art life as well as my life art and I thank them by name. Some of them do not know who they are: the cosmos and I do. My heartfelt gratitude to:
