    These three things have driven me throughout my

    life. It's all I ever discuss, I enjoy these topics and it's always been a dream of mine to date a musician or a painter. Graphic designer even :) Why people preoccupy themselves with banality when there's so much inspiring work out there

    Henryk GóRecki - Symphony Nº3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs)

    Stunningly beautiful and moving score. The London Sinfonetta conducted by David Zinman with Dawn Upshaw is particularly good.

    The Arts Are Everything!

    Being human sometimes is incredibly hard. When you watch the news and see what's happening in Syria, and other places, you think about the ugly things about mankind. It is the art that each individual can do, the beautiful things which should give us focus. Not the destructive...

    I Love Art, Music and Literature

    Is there anything better than playing, writing, or listening to music? Reading a book? Looking at a sculpture or painting? I truly enjoy all of these things... I'm not a snob either. I love it all.

    The Veil of the Soul

    "Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul.' The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of 'Artist.' - Edgar...

    A Life Less Lived, Awakened Courtesy Of Nietzsche.

    Living in New York can be utterly superficial at times. Living day to day, adapting to the routine of work as the primary aspect of life. It becomes all- consuming at times. The 40 hours a week, composed of endless meetings, reports, clients, work evaluations. Weaning yourself on...

    I have no idea why I write poems.

    Is it just to prove to myself that I am doing something productive all along? Or is it just to compare myself with my poet best friend? Show everyone I am not completely worthless or talentless? One thing I've definitely learned is that art is like a vampire. It looks...
