It was in the spring 2012, I took out a piece of vinyl that I had not taken out since the passing of a childhood friend 23years previously.

As I slipped the vinyl out the sleeve, I could see, very faintly, a smudged fingerprint on the black shiny record.

To sit, and study that mark, that trace that was left behind, filled me with an emotion; an emotion of the here and now.

I felt a connection; a connection to my past.

This event was part of me and contributes to a small part of who I am today.

This was to be my first introduction to a mark, a mark left behind.

This introduction was brought on by chance; this occurrence was an event, a moment and a space in time that was in the absence of any obvious intent, outcome or cause.

Every mark that followed I valued.

Since that unexpected introduction, it has forced me to look at my environment with more patience.

I have become a consumer of memories, found objects, marks, traces and information.

We are here to allow our true purpose to unfold.

This how special we are.
