Go to the beach
'What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the Sunset.'
I'm not one for conventions, life is too short to do things arbitrarily. My personality is very reflective and low-key. If something needs to be done I prefer to do it myself. If I get along and laugh with somebody I consider them a friend. If I trust somebody I consider them family.
The New York Rangers are the most important non important thing in my life.
Photography is fun.
The master will appear when the student is ready.
