"Every thing has a force. This life force is the common element that links my existence to nature and to society. It is my belief that a common thread links all things in life. This thread or chain, has many branches radiating out from a single core. In my work, each piece I create is not separate from the next. They are linked through thought, process, belief and experience." — L.S.

Her responses to found life begin with a visceral awareness of the urgency of its vulnerability or death and include a passionately attentive listening that has a visceral or meditative component. This listening to the other's call precludes self-absorption and narcissism, which dissolves defenses against one's own anxiety about vulnerability and death that help produce the mentality of compartmentalization.
