We all come from "some" place.


We gather information, stuff it in our bucket, and let it compress and harden until out pops a satiable nugget of what we understand as "progress". Comprehension, space, time, forgiveness. Progress is to welcome the new, while always, always accounting, and respecting, the old.

Modeling

Sometimes I question why I love modeling so much. At a purely objective standpoint, it feels self-indulgent and vain. When I judge myself, it feels like a cry for validation, importance and relevance. Truthfully, it is all of those things. It's an attempt to express my relationship to myself, and the varied experiences of a very full life.
