Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Memorial Day 2012

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.
 ~Joseph Campbell

I come from a family who have lost members that have protected my freedoms. I am grateful everyday for them.

Creating this card for me is to reminder that what I hold close to my heart. The creative freedoms that I have and that I can choose who it is that I am.
