Recording of Artist Roundtable on Zoom
With an increased appetite for the afterlife
For we can only be splintered by our beliefs
And employed by our forgiveness
I wander amongst unseen and pre-imagined potholes
Conjuring vibrantly illuminated dreams
Tempting us to follow directions: Step 1: embrace/ignore misery
Step 2: Tap yourself into jubilation, or at least oblivion
Step 3: Witness the tapestry of mastery and illusion
Made tender by my capacity for salvation
Where earth’s Rieslings are always in season
Notwithstanding the occasional flood of emotion
Setting a new world order for all
To behold: the joys of human sweetness
Wrapped in sorrow and loss
Many thanks to Dylan Cole and Randy Gaul for their time and selections
