DESCRIPTION

Please join me in a live exploration of the complexities we subconsciously… socially… spiritually… economically… romantically put upon 2 words, and a look at their duel entailing.

“When we bundle individuals into groups by labeling them… we so often overlook the diversities that make them part of any such group”

If I say I only Hate or Love I deny any dual existence of life… the breath in and out… I succumb to the language of the Alphabet, the written language that holds no bearing on the sensual world I inhabit… the language we have suppressed to Black and White… not only within the printed page though within my very language which makes no sense of the sensory world that I no longer become apart of… I stand outside with the fear of what I can not intellectualize or put the alphabet to… even when I can hear the tear… touch the wound… taste the fear… see thy beauty… smell your pleasure…
