about

I have spent the past five years facilitating an arts program for developmentally challenged adults. Essentially, ‘Let the World Know Where You Are’ describes in song what one participant in our painting classes repeatedly depicts in his artwork: rainbow houses, cloudless blue skies with planes destined for unknown places, one car in the driveway, and a climbing-tree in the yard. Invariably, the artist paints his parents and siblings into his pictures. Unfortunately, too many individuals born with developmental disabilities, or suffering from mental illness do not have the benefit and comfort afforded by consistent, healthy relationships with family. Hence the chorus.
