STATEMENT

Plants lack voices. Animals can make noise but lack words. All humans can talk, but that doesn't mean that some are not prevented from doing so.

Until now, they have allbeen silent. However, this does not mean that they do not have a message for us. They have a message that they want to pass along in their own way. If someone were to listen, they might just hear a sorrowful cry. Having listened to them and felt this, I'm hoping to convert this into a form which anyone can see. There is no single way to do this. I use whatever form is best for conveying a particular message.
