I’ve been working behind the scenes on breaking down the ‘Open Doors’ preview – I was quite surprised by the impact the creative process had on me personally, opening doors in ways unexpected.

Still Healing…’Open Doors’ preview before 2015 Official Launch

I want to thank Audible Observatories 2012 for the invitation to preview ‘Open  Doors‘ which officially launches in 2015.

The entire Ohlone community is the center of ‘Open Doors’ and for 2013, ‘Open Doors’ presents a model for facilitating dialogue that can travel and be of healing to other communities.

Glorious 2012

There is so much talk about 2012. 2012 has long been on my mind. Well, since about 1999, to be exact.
