Don't be afraid of opposition. Remember, a kite rises against, not with the wind

My life philosophy can be summed up in three words: independence, faith, and most importantly, perseverance.

I love abstract art since its interpretation is completely subjective depending upon the viewer. The uninhibited appreciation appeals to me.

My two favorite pieces of art right now are Salvador Dali’s “Meditative Rose (Rosa Meditativa)” and childlike images of Lisa Frank’s “Destinee”.

I make iTunes playlists for all occasions. Everything from moods to songs that pertain lyrically or instrumentally to a significant person in my life have a playlist on my iPod. Typically, my songs that I select as the music for my entries are relevant to the subject matter being discussed.

"She is amoral, anarchistic, gentle, and overcivilized to the point of decadence. She is always ten steps ahead of the game because of her awareness, and example of which might be meeting a guy and rejecting him, because she knows they will date, hold hands, kiss, neck, pet, fornicate, perhaps marry, divorce-so why start the whole thing? She knows the hypocrisy of bureaucracy, the hatred implicit in religions-so what values are left for her?-except to go through life avoiding pain, keep her emotions in check, and after that, "be cool," and look for kicks. She is looking for something that transcends all this bullshit and finds it in jazz." (Frank Tirro, Jazz)
