Once upon a time or two or three, I raised a little cane in Jamaica and Hawaii, where the colors of the sun and the moon gave truth to purple fields graced with gold light. Gauguin’s art didn’t lie, even if he did. I never wanted to leave the stains of experience behind, for its colors painted me to be who I am.
