Each time you lift a veil
Your fingers may be covered in blood or honey
This work can take years
This work can take a moment
But if you work hard enough to get over this pain or pleasure
The secret inside will be yours
- from ‘Blood and Honey’, one of the tracks on the CD The Memorists
Like many artists, Tanya Evanson has a prodigious appetite for living. In our interview, the word ‘adventure’ arose again and again like a mantra – punctuating a personal philosophy of personal and spiritual growth. For Evanson, life is a quest, a constant exploration of the unfolding mysteries of the self, and of the self’s connection to the world.
