Somewhere on the Edge of Texas, my Father Saved My Soul

Dimitrios Ikonomou
After a crippling bout of depression, I booked a ticket to visit my father in Texas. My father took care of me, and did his best to help me recover. I had been unable to work creatively for a year, and was unsure if I could again. My father organized a road trip from Houston to Marfa. Somewhere along the way, I started to find myself again. The piece is replete with references to artists I saw and experiences I had during that trip. I don't know what it was I found. But I knew I found something.
