What do you imagine for art, community, and the world as we rebuild together after this time passes?
For me the bull sh*t is out of the way and what matters is what humans are here to experience. TRUST the human-to-human virus.We all entered this world the same way. We were delivered into the hands of a stranger who we will never know, but we will never forget that first touch experience. An unconditional care and concern is recorded in our fiber of being. That TRUST we will search for our entire life and only when we find it, will we feel secure. I don’t believe the human being can live without touch. Without touch, life would just be a thought. We can awake from our dreams but not from life. Life is an ongoing experience interrupted by sleep. If we don’t trust another person, we will slowly die.In my most painful moments I remember my mother’s hand holding my body as all of my pain dissolved into her hands. LOVE is where the self is not. There’s no science that can substitute love. People need to be touched; it is the human experience. We also want to reach out and touch someone’s soul with a song, a poem, a painting, a dance, a performance, to give back the love we have received when we arrived here.
I WAS HERE in mind and body.
