It has not been easy for me to call myself an artist (and I still feel that some will say it’s hubris), and making Lacunae has been an important step on that path.  This project has also reminded me of the incredible support, help and love I have received on this life journey, which in turn has reinforced my desire to do the same for others.

Part V is the final chapter of Lacunae: an Elegy for My Mother. Read the first chapters if you haven’t yet.
