“There were no obstacles to cross and nobody I had to ask for permission. I was an artist from that moment on. I saw things in a different light and understood things that had puzzled me all my life. It opened not only my mind and a way of seeing and thinking, it also broke down barriers that had stunted me all my life.” – Bill Barrell (from his blog post “Full Circle”.)
