I have often thought that this website of mine needed an overhaul, a complete redressing, but each time the memory of this space came to mind, it was easier to brush it away and to leave it for another day.
Maybe, mostly, the issue was with the designation I had given to this space: illumination, illuminator, art, and artist. As years passed, I felt these terms limited rather than defined me.
But to break free of previously held conceptions and ideas is the grandest adventure, is it not? So, I've whacked and whittled away at the old to create the new. This little outpouring of words is in memory of that adventure and in honor to a new, and less restrictive, one.
