“Dirty Angels”

Heaven Sent

"...I find hope in these rooms." 2009

“I may not be performing publicly but, privately I am plotting a revolution with my sons, and their sons, at the helm. This is a ‘creative movement’ and that says to me, ‘never grow stagnant’. I want to find new ways of expressing myself… my love and my fear… because we are so easily consumed by both. I don’t want to be consumed. I don’t want to consume myself. I have never created anything with the intention of selling it to anyone. I try to put that part of the world out of my mind, often to a fault. I want to give what I have because I know, that is the only way to be fulfilled. When I create something and give it away, I am filled up with the spirit of the universe… I am more than a man. Anyone who knows me knows that I am no stranger to consumption and excess. I am a wounded survivor of ‘the great inner conflict’. I fought long and hard but, not necessarily well. In the silence of my own mind there is peace. Nothing else surprises me.” -@[1551610861:Allen D]
