“Artists are magical helpers.  Evoking symbols and motifs that connect us to our deeper selves.  They can help us along the heroic journey of our own lives…     The artist is meant to put the objects of this world together in such a way that through them you will experience that light, that radiance which is the light of our consciousness and which all things both hide and, when properly looked upon, reveal.  The hero journey is one of the universal patterns through which that radiance shows brightly.  What I think is that a good life is one hero journey after another.  Over and over again you are called to the realm of adventure, you are called to new horizons.  Each time, there is the same problem: do I dare?  And then if you do dare, the dangers are there, and the help also, and the fulfillment or the fiasco.  There’s always the possibility of a fiasco.  But there’s also the possibility of bliss.”
