Ladders appear often in my work. They are intended for ascending only. I aspire to loftier heights in life and art.
I first recognized the significance of ladders as I listened to the Waterboys song, “Whole of the Moon”. The chorus has become my mission statement in life, to try to see the big picture. I hope to quietly leave this place, with that beautiful song playing all around me.
“A torch in your pocket and the wind at your heels,
You climbed on a ladder and you know how it feels
to get to high,
I saw the crescent, you saw the whole of the moon
