This is the point of no return… the inner voices are even stronger… I am going to take off the masks that society and I have placed on myself… no longer do I have to listen to those inner voices… when I went to Japan to show my work in 1997, I ate sushi for the first time, and liked it… in fact, that is when I started to like myself for the first time… I began to embrace and accept who I was… a Japanese American male.

This was the point of no return.
