The Novenas are my attempt to unfold my self in a way that may help the world. The overall structure is open enough to work archaically, magically, mythically, mentally, and/or all of these integrated into one. The allies help me understand in what mode I am working. The Birdman integrates them all. The way an artist approaches a social and/or environmental problem must truly come from an organic type of unfolding. Problems are somehow addressed first secretly within the soul of the artist and then physical manifestations follow. It is difficult to force this so I withdraw my challenge. Artists are drawn to helping others just as lovers are drawn to each other.
