This selection is intended to reveal a little more about me -- Expatrius, AKA . Peter, 35 year California resident, British, Celtic, European: born UK 1946-- than what could be inferred from just the content of the writing and images.
I am uninterested in profiting from art; I want what I create to be what I see through my poet’s eyes without the influence of being considered “marketable”. Money changes art similarly to the way we are told observing changes quantum experiments; money inevitably corrupts creativity the way it corrupts politics.
Art is a gift from the sacred, to be treasured and nurtured, too valuable to be wasted or prostituted.
