13 years ago, my son Gabriel was born … 12/26/99 … he just became a teenager and even though I am completely an atheist, I can’t escape my Catholic roots … thus a made myself a totem I will turn to when I need advice … notice I made his mouth WIDE open … so I can hear what he’s saying.

art makes us human

I am an artist today (for what it’s worth) because of my uncle, Leonel. He is the person who introduced me to the world of art and took me to my first real museum trips. Today, we are both old men and teachers. I have used a few of his works as posts here in the past and now I have a digital work to share as well. (VIDEO HERE)

What do teachers make? Teachers make humans who experience their humanity.
