This personal essay, which includes many art images, centers on a day trip to a farm that has been in our family since Indian Territory days. There are countless stories about the farm, and each generation has it's own versions. Having a personal connection to an image has become an important component in my art/ The essay "A Creek Called Grindstone" expands on this notion. The essay also gave me a way to look at relationships which teach life lessons, including those of family.
I am now the oldest living direct descendant of those early ancestors who came to Indian Territory. My brother (and best friend) Joe is next.
