Often I refer to feelings of heightened energy and excitement, I have felt this way my entire life. It’s that childlike yearning to never stop and never to fall asleep. I first noticed it after tracing my left hand then transforming it into a turkey. While this was a completely directed and non-original act, it held a great deal of importance. Marking a surface, forming a familiar object, altering it’s meaning, and sticking it to the refrigerator brought about the turkey and its audience. Understanding that people’s perception could be altered by an idea coupled with action brought about a rush I have sought out ever since. Following this drive continues to keep me connected with my inner-child and has made for very fulfilling life.
