"Leaving Lexington" currently at Third Street Coffee

"LEAVING LEXINGTON", Linsay Holley and HC                                                                                                                                                               Leaving home is rarely easy…. sometimes planned…. sometimes not…. leaving your home is steeped in connotations and possibilities both positive and negative. When one is reliant upon a considerable array of social service supports…. in themselves a kind of ghostly vapor…. well, then potential for leaving is further diminished….  

The creation of this piece…. the pure of heart of this process in which two very different personalities met briefly to link and form a path was….  in itself fraught with misdirection…. misunderstandings…. and yet it was an incredible opportunity. The physical manifestation of this process…. these things you see in front of you…. are but the smallest essence of this collaboration…. in this perhaps you can grasp the necessity of these things we occasionally do together…. for each other….
