Automediality is a key component of my artistic practice.
Automediality is a form of autobiography through media,
in real time, shaped by the media outlets utilized
this journal is one of my media outlets

thank you for following along with me on my journey
follow me
I have only followed my heart
I have relied in it to show me the way
I don't have
and I have never had
an agenda in loving you
I let my heart guide me
I have always seen 
the beauty of your true self
I have come to show you
the beauty of you
the first day back from Christmas break
I went for my usual walk
I was shocked to find the entire cemetery 
covered in flowers
I had never seen ANYTHING like this, ever
or since
I was overwhelmed by the beauty of it
I realized they were camellias
I do not remember ever seeing camellias before
but here they were
in the morning mist
amidst the monuments and the Spanish moss
the bright flowers and the ethereal 
an unexpected synergy
a gift to me in my life
that I cherish 
and although it is not the same,
I was happy to see that the Camellias
bloom here in LA
and always remind me of this moment

every day was different
there were hundreds
of incredible
monuments and sculptures 
at Bonaventure
not to mention
wrought iron fencing and gates
that in any other place might have been
but not here
Most of the visitors to Bonaventure
are tourists and out of towners
The locals refuse to go here
because they think it is haunted
They thought I was crazy for walking here
there are so many incredible monuments 
and headstones at Bonaventure
but these two are my most photographed
every day I passed by here 
and I felt the most intense love
around this space
I called these two headstones
The Lovers
every morning when I lived in Savannah
I walked around the perimeter of 
Bonaventure Cemetery
It is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places
I know
At that time of the day, 
I was always the only person there besides the city workers

don't forget to dance today
may all your happy wishes come true
you will always be my favorite person to give surprise gifts to
to all
my favorite part of the day
putting it all together
so everyone's stomach is happy
I am here, 
in rain, snow
and 90 degrees on Thanksgiving LA weather
Meret Oppenheim and I 
wish you a Happy Thanksgiving
woke up to 2 blooming roses
in the early morning LA sun
Happy Thanksgiving
you have not tasted hot sauce 
until you have tasted 
Roger's hot sauce
he grows all the peppers in his garden
and makes the sauce himself
I am not sure what I miss more
or the hot sauce
 these peppers are a work of art
