Without our pasts, we are nothing
Our identities rely completely on the person we were yesterday. If we don't have that past, who are we?
Only the youngest children can look at the world with non-judgement and see what it really is. As adults, we have to learn to let go of the things from our past that hold us back and prevent our progress. But this process of un-learning requires more wisdom than it seems.
"The Yellow Room" and "Love Lightly" touch on themes of letting go, connection, and memory.
When a recovering alcoholic finds herself stuck in a compromising position outside a bar, The Yellow Room, she must confront her past and choose the person she wants to become.
"Love Lightly" is a poetic portrayal of two lovers dealing with slow-death of their life together.

Lana Tan was born to be a bridge between worlds. She sees the unity, within the duality, and her life work is finding some way to communicate this wholeness in seeming opposites. She hopes to capture but a fragment of the wordless wonder in her so many words, and that the music of the stars can one day be sold on plastic key chains.
