Was Very fortunate to have been invited to participate in an artist open studio tour for the public to see... Especially from around one of my old neighborhood... HOW CRAZY IS THAT!!! Not so far from there was my old YWCA that was then converted into a shelter, now no more. After some time passed, and after I was located to Brooklyn, and also returning back to my stomping grounds; I must say I am very thrilled! Never saw the possibility of GIVING BACK to my community in a way that is so genuine and awesome as this great tour.
