The Road of My Life
1999, pencil; a life-map by Chris Wayan
My life history, told in women: friends, lovers, relatives, ancestors.
The white road is my timeline--the horizon's the past, the foreground is now, the question mark's the future. Standing on the white road are the friends and lovers I've met--my life-choices.
But you can't choose your roots. The figures floating off the road of my choices are those roots: my family and ancestors, including one past life.

ROAD Detail: FRIENDS AND LOVERS
Friends, and lovers, and some who got away. And the big question mark: who's next?
ROAD Detail: SISTERS, COUSINS, NIECES
Go back, wrong way, says the sign, not because the past is dead--because it isn't.
