2017, She smiles after all that... Not a bystander to anger, violence & bullying
Art is made for people to react. Having a position means what you are doing is needed and it is creating change. In the long term, a lot of people are going to appreciate it. - Venezuelan Woman,  
Alberta Legislature Art Show & Tell, 2017.

1981, Ken Ku Kuo once told me that in China, people know life as a river. Going down a river you never know what lies around the next bend. Sometimes the water is like rapids, very bad time and hard at living. Sometimes it's calm, very happy to be alive, but always changing. Sometimes good times, sometimes bad times, 
but always changing. Co-worker, friend 
Ken from Hanoi, Vietnam.
