ARTIST STATEMENT CHANCE
Sometimes I come to the end of the day and I am not sure if I have accomplished anything of meaning or importance.
I have perhaps done many things throughout the day, but somehow I feel empty and unsatisfied.
As I lay my head to sleep, I wonder …
I have been working hard in many areas of my life for what feels like a long time. I might have degrees and position…or not.
I might have enough money…or not. I might have friends and family…or not. I might have the best abs…or not…
It is with the coming of the night, after several glasses of “spirits” that my mind turns to the emptiness, and I consider, is there more?”
How can I feel whole and satisfied?
I cry out to whatever God or thing might be there to hear me! I plead for something! Anything!
My eyes filled with tears and my heart is full of ache! I cry out “PLEASE HELP ME”! Tired and exhausted I fall into a deep sleep.
I awaken to a new day. A new day has come. I am filled up with a peace and stillness that I am not familiar with.
My mind is clear and my heart FEELS. I see the sunlight sparkle in the sky. I feel like a have a Chance. Everything is okay.
I think I am filled with “spirits” of a different kind? I am burning with something that feels good and true.
The “spirits” that I have been longing for have been with me all along, just for the asking…
two small words can change everything…HELP ME.
I will choose the spirit that makes me true, whole, and real. I will no longer choose the “spirits” in the bottle.
