Past, Present and Future
"This was an exercise, trying to give form to concepts of my past, present and future. While the future seems to contain the hope of freedom, I must admit that it is very difficult to actually convince myself such a future is possible. If it IS attainable, it appears there is a step missing, a yawning chasm between my present and such a future. An almost impassable fissure that the shackled present has yet to find mechanisms with which to navigate such crossing. Some small hope, indeed. This next self-portrait perhaps explicates somewhat the arduous task before me. Wish me luck."
