About the Book

The book is a creation of my imagination in relation to my life and journey behind bars. Through artwork I manage to escape this life of pain and suffering! It started way back in 1995, when I met "Berry Bryant" from the Samaya Foundation. While I was serving time at the juvenile facility Camp Gonzalez, right off of Calabasas by Malibu CA. He was in charge of a project and program for non-violence. Along with him came some Monk's from India that were originally from 'Tibet'. His teachings were the art and culture of the Monks like the 14-Dalai Lama and the sand mandala. A mandala is a wheel of compassion created in different colors of sand, which you pour in a char-pur. A chak-pur is a cone-shape metal funnel that you use to draw. It was through that experience that I learned Patience, Peace and Tranquility; which I never imagined would help me in a big way later on in life. So the book is about finding freedom, peace, and tranquility through Artwork in the midst of my confinement.
