i am the life that i live
site by traut
to me the meaning of life is to tell one’s story,
the obligation of life is to listen to another’s.
i created birchwater studios because i get stuck,
an abandoned structure, the silver of a sycamore
against the winter sky, a discarded chair along
side the freeway, meeting a stranger that has forgotten their voice.
these moments urge me to create a visual history
of character and life; my work comes from listening
to and forming those stories while telling my own.
it is in the silence of completion that i know i have succeeded.
