Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

The Revolution Within

"We become capable of imaginatively, curiously, 'stepping back' from ourselves- from the life we lead- and of disposing ourselves to 'know about it.' The moment comes when we not only live, but begin to know, that we are living- hence it is possible for us to know that we know, and therefore to know that we could do more." ~ Paulo Freire

When we walk along life's path, eventually, we acknowledge that creative ground which supports our steps. Occasionally, we need to clear the way of debris, 'lead ourselves not into temptation' (distraction) as we accommodate the footing that moves us forward. Fortitude emerges with the recognition that we have the power to adjust, adapt, attempt, achieve, affect.  We evolve; we make a difference.
