Of my beginnings I recall flashes: ancient images like cracked pictures in faded black and whites on dusty shelves abandoned to the quiet passing of time. I see scarred, brown faces, glimpses of unknown places and mysterious spaces: a night-street, illuminated by a defused, pale, yellow light, an old, abandoned pickup parked beside a filling station, a man’s grease stained face peering out a grimy window into a lonely, vacant night, an emaciated dog wandering an alley of forgotten, rusted car carcasses and the odd image of a menacing butcher knife impaled above the inside of a door of a shack. Solitary images standing without narrative, life or meaning. Without voices, they offer but brief windows into time before awakening, awareness, questioning and understanding. They place me in silent moments among the echoing shadows of time. Seeking explanation, finding none, they return in vulnerable darkness of sleep.
