There is a saying that you can "speak things into existence" and at some point this year became a testament to that. I owe the credit to so many people. I'm honored by everyone who has been in my life and helped me on this journey of discovery. It's been a roller-coaster ride that hasn't come down.
Yanatha hooked up the opportunity for me to display my artwork at Lynn University's Celebration Of Life, to him pimping me (sort of speak lol) and letting me be apart of the Poetry/Art tour he put together in April. This literally happen, the day I lost my job of 9 years and realize I was going to end up loosing my apartment. The chance to be apart of this made me realize that my artwork could be important and that people generally really felt a connection to it when he forced me to get up and speak about the paintings and myself.
Taalam Acey and the ever so amazing Queen Sheba paintings by me. At this point I'm thinking it gets no better this is the highlight of my life right here. Only to have months later Acey ask me to be apart of his latest project (Modern Aestheticism) by submitting two painting that he would create spoken word pieces around.
I'm honored for all the friends and connections I've made this year. I can't even begin to list names or all the things that has happen this year. All I know is 2012 is going to beautiful, and thank you all for 2011. You say that I'm humble, I say it's because you all keep me grounded as you help me touch the sky. Thank you.
