I love a good story no matter how it's told whether it's through art, music, orally, indecently, theatrically. I love the ocean for many reasons. I also enjoy reading, writing, glassblowing, welding, carpentry, farming, playing guitar, traveling, festivals, fiestas, celebrations of all sorts, meeting new people, and seeing new places, cold beverages, good food, fine wine. i like those moments that connect thoughts in your head and remind you how beautifully sad the whole wide world is, laughter and sunshine in a room, summer thunderstorms, I like anything that has to do with real, true, unrestrained, raw expression.
Carpe diem, carpe noctem, carpe vitam, carpe temporis punctum...
