Dogs and Gods

Dogs and Gods, the continuing debate, arguing about the bragging rights to man's best friend.

These works reflect my realization that life’s every movement possesses a humorous bend in the river, where one may be given aid by animals, magicians and shamans or menaced by devils, clowns and bumble bees. Where you go depends upon where you have been, and where you can go depends upon what you can imagine.

.

Characteristically all of these works are autobiographical, repurposed and retraced narratives, such as identity, sexuality, spirituality, beauty and mortality, different chapters and never in order of appearance, markings on my life.
