We are all unique and amazing. With this notion bouncing around inside me I offer to the world what I have to share. The words inside my head have reached to overflowing and in an attempt to keep from exploding I have taken to writing. What follows is the result of purging my mind.

There is no art without struggle

A Billosophical perspective of the creative process.
no matter how much effort I exert, no matter how much time I spend contemplating, no matter how much I worry, fear or hope I only have control of myself right now. the future will be a reaction to who I am now and what I do now.
I have been in Turkmenistan for almost one week now and wow what a place! I have spent most of my time working with very little time to explore except the area just around the hotel on day one and most nights in search of dinner. We have had a relatively easy go of it as we have interpreters to help us for must of the day. The reason for the visit is to do a cultural exchange with the Institute of Culture Circus Department and the Turkmen State Circus. We have been received warmly by both groups. Both groups have been extremely generous in sharing their circus and culture with us. In the coming days I will delve into the details of what I hope will be a long friendship between our two circus cultures and our circus families. Do to the internet inconsistencies where I am I may not be able to post again until I return to the US, if you would like to read more check back here in the coming days.
I was last in line to be born in my house. My eyes and my lungs were flawed from birth but did not stop me from getting here. I have grown into my voice. I have run from border to border to better know where I live. I sat down to better know where I stand. I have fallen for things and people. I have held firm to beliefs and ideals. I have stood in the shadow of greatness and learned to cast a shadow of greatness. I can never go back to the beginning Each day brings me closer to the end. Each moment serves me new nuggets of wisdom. Each friend brings more knowledge and hope. Knowing what I know, seeing what I've seen it's time to radiate life from the core of my being.
