I want to be an artist. And to say that took me so many years to say. I almost felt like I needed permission from other people to be an artist. But I realized that when I was sharing my art, people were taking it in and it was making a difference in culture. I’ve been feeling very connected to Basquiat and the 27 Club lately. I can tap into his energy, especially since I teach in the same place that he created. I want to walk at fashion week like he did. He wasn’t a model. He was a unique creative. Fashion has always been inside me but I don’t want to be in any of these worlds. I want to be that person that is part of it all. I want to be an artist. I am an artist. I want that to be even more of who I associate myself with being. I want to accept myself fully for that. I don’t want to go off the cliff that everybody else is falling off of. I am now constantly trying to follow the steps that I feel lead towards my own personal content. I am slowly learning that life can be however one imagines or hopes it can be: there are powers in and around us that are available for our use. By latching on to this light energy we can truly assist in creating positive changes in our world. I want to be remember as a healer, a pioneer. The Mormon pioneers are in my blood. That is the biggest thing I took away as a kid. Look inside and trust yourself. No one is going to have my path.
