To my wife, Adele Henderson, my mother, Muriel Hirsch, and my companion, Marty Keeshond, for their love and support. In addition, to all the artists, writers, and teachers, past and present, who have influenced and inspired my own endeavors.
“If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?”

“Here the ways of man part: If you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire.”
