A Time To Remember

---FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE---


As we go through life, maybe more so, if we are in the arts.
we stand upon the shoulders of those who have come before.
We learn from their successes and from their mistakes.
We watch closely as they struggle with the composition or with
the tech of the day.
We watch as they learn to speak with the voice
of their medium. Clear statements of who they are and what they
saw and felt while in the process of creation.

We can only work to speak our truth as clearly.
To make our statements as bold and uncompromising as possible.
To walk in the footsteps of those who have gone on before
and to reach a bit further along the path as honorable examples
for those who will come after us.
To be the bridge between what was and what will be.
