There is a mythological character named Coyote, he’s a trickster god. I like him, he’s got class, he’s not afraid to make a fool of himself, so he’s powerful because he can fool anyone. He often gets in trouble for doing things he shouldn’t and he’s an amazing teacher for this very reason. He teaches us what NOT to do by doing it! I have to laugh about the money thing. Being an artist in these times is a challenging thing for every artist I know. Remember one of the reasons I am doing this project is because there are NO art teachers in any of the elementary schools in the local school district.
I feel like I got tricked by Coyote. I thought that I was creative enough to make a job for myself, to get paid for working on this project. So I worked and worked hard making this dream come true, manifesting a vision. If I would of known that I actually was not going to get paid on this project I wouldn’t of, couldn’t of worked on it. My responsibilities as a father and family provider would of had me doing something else, but NO…. I got tricked by a trickster and now it’s happening and now we have a lot of support and this thing has legs of it own and it’s already a beautiful thing. I only wish you could see the people who are showing up and wanting to be connected to it – sweet!
