Henry James said that "art is nothing more than the shadow of humanity'. So it would seem that I love to linger in the shadows. I am an avid mountain biking, printmaker (artist), constant reader, foodie and lover of life. I have a zeal for living well and lust for life. However, to the casual observer, it may appear as if I have been meandering through life like a drunkard on roller blades; weaving in and out of days, months and years, trying hard not to hit into anything or to hurt myself too badly. All the while I am attempting balancing a tray of fine crystal shards on the head of a thawing frozen fish. All the while the random thoughts in my head keep springing to life with the the agility of a three legged cat.
