The most common question I'm asked about my art is, "Where do you get your ideas?" I love the written word and quotations inspire me. When I read or hear something that strikes a chord, images begin to form in my brain.
When I see you walk the streets of New York, it makes me cry. You look like you fit right in and that you are your own, independent person. It's as if you were never a baby who fell asleep in my arms. You look like you just showed up one day, fully-formed. It's amazing and incomprehensible.
And when it comes to words that command attention, nothing can beat those that are phrased according to the figure of speech known as dehortatio, which Willard R. Espy once crisply defined as "dissuasive advice given with authority."
