Freed From Rage and Sorrow

Reflections of Emptiness in the American Dream

Freed From Rage and Sorrow is a musical album and photography book in the making. Inspired by death and realization, this work documents a life long journey toward understanding and recovery, revealing the inner process reflected in the outer world. Through subconscious voices, sending coded messages, speaking in poetry and images, the self is lead to discovering what is real. And in so doing, builds a bridge back to wholeness.

Poems became songs and images became photographs. For over twenty years, I have created the sound and vision that is becoming this work. In darkness, not knowing why, always seeking, always trusting, pushing possibility to the limit, and finally over, facing the most terrifying, the most painful, because I must. I must be set free. And now, finally, I am beginning to step into this liberation. Letting go of the wish for it to be different. Relinquishing the fantasy that I have the power to change anything but myself.

The business model seemed unsustainable and I didn’t trust that I would get the funds handled properly, I was worried, that if the campaign was successful, I would end up holding the bag and I was not in any condition to just roll with more music industry bullshit. The line had been drawn out of absolute necessity. I had nothing left to give. It was time to let go.
