Time As We Know It

Time As We Know It

I began this project five years ago thinking I was simply chronicling my process of getting old. I didn’t realize that I would end up embracing these images as a tribute to not just my life but also to the demanding task of aging with grace. 

Growing older has occasioned a gradual letting go of things I’ve taken for granted all my life:  my youth, figure, memory, mobility, hearing.  So much is out of my control; perhaps it always was, but I was blind to it.  I enjoy not having to know everything or solve everything or be on top of everything.  I’m clear about what is important.  Occasionally I think about dying, wondering what will do me in, when and where.  But most days I’m in my studio engaged in various projects.  Creativity keeps me busy, alive and vibrant.   Thoughts of growing old recede as I immerse myself in my work.
