The work: Warnings of civil unrest, rise in hate crimes, increasing gun violence, and a reviving of racial discrimination follows us into the present millennium. The need to assign, mental and emotional resting places for issues not immediately resolved, is lost in our first world consciousness. The use of spiritual symbolism to give place to the unrest is a lost practice. Bio: Born in Manila, Philippines, raised in Seattle, WA. Oberlin College, OH, BA; University of Colorado, Boulder, MFA.
