There have been a few times in the past week where I have reconnected with folks that I only new as youth. I have been so moved by the adventures that have been lived. And then I got a note from Joshua Petker’s proud momma. Joshua probably would not even remember me as the last time I saw him was more than 15 years ago in San Francisco. Wandering through his paintings, emotions just kind of pour out. From disturbing to beautiful to a little of both, he definitely makes one pause to take it all in.
