Superior. Inferior. Standing. Inconsiderate… Waiting. Not important… Outside. Ostracized.
Inside (finally). But, this is not inclusion. I waited to talk with him. I waited to talk with her. All the time staring at my shoes; and anticipating carpet.
Inside is not inclusion. The table and the crossed legs. The cross looks. I am on the bank of her moat.
What the hell am I? Certainly not a person they want to get to know. I am just… I am just… Wait a minute! Am I Just?
The quizzical looks; the rehearsed conversations; it’s their territory; filled with books and binders – pristine spines not cracked.

Ginosko is a Greek word used in ancient times to define a deep knowledge of God; an interior union. These paintings represent Contemplation, something that every one can experience when in silence and listening for God who doesn't come in a storm, or in a fire, or an earthquake, but in a whisper. Wait for the Ruah of the Holiest. One day you may find yourself in the position of being emptied and in a moment bestowed the blessing of nothingness. Wait for it and don't expect anything.
