I KEPT MY SHARE of secrets growing up, stories I was ashamed to share. But I also needed to share them. So what I did was "sugar coat" them. I'd recount them, openly, in ways that made them light-hearted, charming, delightful, or even funny. This made the truth more palatable. Incredible, spiritual experiences became easy to accept, and less embarassing. People lapped them up. This tendency became one of my 'talents', you could say. To acknowledge this, I've been inspired to create these "Sugar Sticks" —delightful, fun-loving, eye-candies. Like my "Cocoons", these sparkly, monochromatic totems can be installed outside or inside, and come in a range of sizes and colors. Best of all, I know someday the stories hidden inside them will find a way to slip out.
