One moment I was someone. Then I was someone else.
Many people have big travels and adventures. But not that many travel from being one person to being another.
I made headlines for 30 years, promoting print and broadcast for global media known from Burundi to Beverly Hills.
I survived Time, Vogue, Vanity Fair, New York, The New Yorker, CBS and CNN. Icons and editors known for bodyguards and body counts, delivered while dressed to kill.
Then I got hit by a truck. The good news was I survived. The bad news was brain damage.
Lots of things can be replaced. These do not include your mind.
In a little brain, I carried all my past and history.
My child and my child’s childhood,
And all I thought was me.
I make art for humans and homes for birds high on a hill over a river — and I have written a book. I have been compressed, compacted, but I have not been crushed.
