Fugue is about growing up in a violent home where most nights there was more food on the ceiling than on our plates. I was raised with verbal, physical and sexual abuse. I would not have survived without my older brother Artie. He and I talked in secret for years about how wonderful life was going to be when we moved out.
My dreams of leaving home helped me until I left. Growing up in my environment prepared me to live my life in a state of confusion that I worked hard to keep a secret. I never found home no matter how many times I moved and I never found someone to love me no matter how many times I married until one day I heard a voice from my past and I listened.
Fugue shows life in full circle from my parent's abusing me, to my healing and then being
there for my daughter when she came home to heal from her childhood. Fugue is about healing and not about blaming, revenge or getting even. It's about understanding that no matter where we came from we can still have a quality life. I lived to prove that.
