Lot Essay

"As I break through fears, or balance on the walls of fear, either by speaking or moving, it’s an incredible landscape there. Suddenly, I’m loosening all the laws that I constructed for myself, all the rules. I’m not through with them or I haven’t passed yet, but that’s what happens when you confront death, all of the things that you construct for your safety become useless, so you start bounding against them. What gets revealed out of that is something I only wish I had twenty years ago." — David Wojnarowicz
