course acknowledging people is an easy thing to do; we do it
often every day. We buy a soda, we say thank you. Someone opens
a door for us, we nod our head. Silent or vocal, thanking people
should come naturally.
When I sat down to write
this acknowledgment I thought well, I gotta thank my parents.
And I think this is a common thought among most acknowledgment-ers.
For where would you be without them? My brain then moved onto
the next most common thought/s that befalls any such person in
such a circumstance: the mind is immediately filled with so many
names that it almost instantaneously goes blank, the mouth gaps
slightly open and the eyes glaze over. You sit and stare.
Here is a list of those who's
help, encouragement and beliefs I'd like to recognize. My parents
started the list and the rest follow in no particular order,
for, like I said, where would I be without them?
staff: Bill, Ed, Heather, and Ric
of Art Access Magazine, my mentor
from those in my hometown of Tacoma, WA and beyond
who ever stepped foot inside 1008 N. Corona
those I've bumped into since I set out on this journey and those
I've yet to hit
