BLOG

Yeah, he blogs, but grumpily. As a wise person once said, the only redemption for the inevitable suffering that comes with living is to make art about it. The worst experiences make the best stories, but I also write to remind myself not to miss those tiny, beautiful things that make up every day. It's nice to shoot for the stars, but it's a journey full of unexpected marvels, not a destination. I try to write about those.
