I believe that art is the process of interpreting the meaning of life through creative expression and as such everyone does it all the time so it's no big deal. Just do it as we used to say in the '60s. It's fun, sustainable, and definitely biodegradeable.
I was born in LA and raised on rock 'n roll and revolution. Been around the block many times. Blessed to have lived an interesting life from writing/filmmaking/photography to community organizing and radical politics. Happy to be surrounded by loved ones and friends and family.
