"The Quintessential 1950's Family Sets the Stage" "Am I inspired by an early morning drive on the way to church in the mini-van with my wife of 15 years and my two sons, that, before Louis finishes serenading Ella, we’ve past the old boarded up abandoned ghetto into the plush sophisticated remains of everywhere else? ~ Am I a racist because I choose to segregate my colors with clear and divisible lines so that there will be no confusion about one’s place and purpose? ~ Maybe I should feel embarrassed that even while the sun shines through our dining room window, casting questionable shadows from a chair on the adjacent wall, that I sometimes feel more refreshed to stare at the hypnotic light coming from behind our computer or television screen. ~ Would it be correct to say that I’m motivated by the visual strength given from the standing forests of skyscrapers that seem to always overwhelm the abundance of nature? ~Because of 'this and that and that and this' I work.
