As with most of my books, I just begin. I am working with shape, gesture, line and color. During this process, I listen and observe to see where the book is taking me. I begin working with the space between the shapes; between the colors, lines and text. It is a pause, a quiet in the space between. This became the nature of the book. As in life, there is space between thoughts, emotions and events. It is about listening to this space. This is what holds my attention.
