A Few Thoughts

“Love is an interruption in where you thought you’d be going and what you thought you’d be doing.” “Anytime that you try to solve a problem, you are perpetuating the problem. Excavating the issues and alchemizing them is a creative act and a contribution.” “You’ve got to commit to what you’ve got, not what you…
