The reflection of intersections of events, places, and times as well as influences of the past, the unknown, and chance is the overriding concern of Vital Signs.

I have come to value the relationships of seemingly unrelated things. I trust, though don’t always recognize, influences beyond our western, cause-and-effect, linear reckoning. The intersections of the universal and the personal and of time and place can have tremendous significance. Influences unseen and beyond my time—those of ancestors and natural forces and intersecting cultures—provide markers.
