One of the ongoing projects of modern art, and probably its most serious, is to tell what it’s really like to be living here now. Not what it’s like on television or in advertisements, not what it’s like to be a cohort, but what it’s like to be a man or a woman in that unique body that’s always living an odd life. Against the forces of false persuasion the artist offers an undeniable sort of truth, stated in simple human terms, minus the jargon and the emblems of expertise and false authority. It’s always a voice and the voice always says: this is how it is for me, and I hope you understand.

that’s good good super good hon… all my stories have been wonky and slightly to the right of truth 🙂 i really love your graphic arts… the boldness… the quote is utterly utterly fitting…. i used to put quotes and poems underneath my photos when i started a photoblog… do you remember that? i started my photoblog under your care and instruction… somebody said that they thought i was cheating coz i didn’t write the poems myself.. and that kind of ruined it for me. do you recall how we met? you found my ‘thursday thirteen’.. 13 reasons NOT to start a photoblog, and you took pity on me 🙂

I like the visual you have presented along with the quote. I try to live my life in a way that is true to myself. I am not like anyone else and need to embrace that.

Great graphic, Sherri. I also enjoy the quote — it is truly important to be present, live life as your are today!
