In June, I visited Highland Park for a show opening at their Art Center. I met great people, spent time in their businesses, and walked up and down their streets. A couple weeks later, the July 4th mass shooting happened. This piece is for Highland Park.

“Each day I pray into the silence. I pray to all of them. All of them who are not here. Into this emptiness, I pour all my desire and want and need, and in time this absence becomes potent and alive and activated with a promise. This promise that sits inside the silence is beauty enough.” -Nick Cave
