"His eyes they closed and his last breath spoke, he had seen all to be seen.

A life once full, now an empty vase wilt the blossoms on his early grave"

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear;

the strength so strong mere force is feebleness:

the truth more first than sun, more last than star...”

Indian Giver

Posted on June 13, 2016

Indian Giver

During WWII, my family spent 4 years in the re-reclaimed desert of the Gila River Reservation.

Something about the US Government taking back the land they forced the Native Americans onto after annihilating their entire civilization and stuffing it with "Enemy Aliens" always made me laugh through the tears.

I rarely dig into this directly with my art, but a history of displacement and denial of identity is a huge part of who I am.

So when you ask me where I come from, I have to take a moment and remember that each of us are more than merely what we can carry on our backs or the stories in our faces. You can strip me down and define me, but you still won't see me. You can force me into the wasteland, but I will not break.

And when I see the Stars and Stripes, I salute because there is barbed wire in my blood.

Gaman— We endure.

Homecoming - Darth Vader

"We learn, grow and become compassionate and generous as much through exile as homecoming,

as much through loss as gain, as much through giving things away as in receiving what we believe to be our due."
