The Conversation's Story

 

From the moment I met you we hit it off.  There is something genuinely magical when you meet someone that aligns so well with you that you can talk about anything: That is you and I. Our conversations are grand. I've memorialized this one from June 10, 2014, when you came over to my studio and we sat around my work table drinking wine and talking at length about bigotry. Do you remember the conversation? We were fascinated by how easily each one of us succumbs to a perception of race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation based solely on someone's look, and how often we are quite wrong. As we bantered our thoughts back and forth, I became entranced with how your gestures were articulating your views.
