James Bouthiller/Soul Scribblings

I began writing seven years ago, after a school friend shared the experience of her mother's passing, and apparent, subsequent visit in the form of a familiar, now symbolistic bird in the backyard which they once looked upon together... I am an occasional potter since 1993, an ex bricklayer of 20 plus years, drawn to material of Earth, soul and sky... In recognition of our many layered worlds and varied occupants within, I am compelled and challenged, to not only survive, but observe deeply, question and express our shared common and uncommon journeys.
