Back in 1996,
was born out of disillusionment,
a question of confidence,
“Grant” was simultaneously
coming out of a divorce,
and a closet,
(that I had to be told that I was even in!).
Hollis, Lary, and Daniel and I had met,
I was choosing to leave a secure job,
and we decided to travel to Europe on a whim,
fueled by the offer of free flights,
and a bottle of red wine.
My life had been one
of focusing on being “good”,
of pleasing everyone but myself,
and I was allured by the ridiculousness
of our collective thought,
that we could live our lives
by being “ourselves”.
Drunk on life, I said:
“I want to be paid to be GRANT HENRY,
Surrounded by creative dreamers
(aka crazzzzzzy people!)
I said goodbye to being good,
jumped aboard that plane to Prague,
fucked a little fear the night before we left,
and took off>>>.
Trusting the universe,
I realized that being truthful
IS a higher calling
than being good.
If you are on a path
that you fear is taking you straight to Hell,
maybe try putting blinders on,
and keep going?
HELL IS HOT HOT HOT!!!
You never know
where you might be
in all 50 states,
Mexico, and Prague,
“God Bless all who see Sister Louisa Art
and feel the power of God’s true love.”
