(Just Call me Cindy Sherman!)
“I art, I paint it, study it, look at it, change it,
exhibit it, and I used to teach it. I could not live without it.
Not in this world. Not in my lifetime.
I also color, cultivate, taste, touch, and poetry.
I prune and feed. I fail, despair, breakthrough and weep.
I catalyst, I organize, and I convene.
I leave on a jet plane,
I gather ingredients, I invite you over.
I collect, while cultivating a minimalist sensibility.
I search, I meditate, I Buddha.
I California and walk my dog.
I, here and now.”
