Seeing it
is an ongoing evolution. Like Life itself.

So is communicating what I witnessed and beheld.

Shared understanding is all that matters.

Life started and evolved at a scale nobody can see.

I can only marvel at the outcome, imagining it at our scale.

Mesmerized by the beauty of deceptive Life’s reproduction strategies,

one might ignore Life’s efforts to maintain its living conditions.

Facing unknowns, escaping to fictional realities was our obvious choice.

Is it not inspiring that each of our body's living cells

is it functionally aware, and depends on its living environment?

The cast shadow of a man and the fire damage of the Great Canadian Shield environment.

We all indulged in self-elevated exceptionalism long enough

to be on a collision course with Life's realities.

Intensifying signs of global warming are only a part of it.

There are choices to make, follow, and re-examine our myths and fantasies.

For decades, I used to escape the urban world into a different realm of reasoning.

My experiences, ideas and thoughts from it transpired in my exhibition projects

at private and public galleries.

The richly illustrated stories document my mind's evolution and its discoveries.

“To know and not to do is not to know.”
An old Chinese proverb.

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”
