I try and greet each day as it comes, knowing that through my blunders, I have opportunities to grow and become better. I am by no means an optimist or a perfectionist, but I do have high expectations for myself and respect others who do for themselves as well.
I've been told that prematurely eccentric, which I take as a compliment. I have always felt very connected with the past, and somewhat misplaced within time.
Although I could not be considered "religious," I feel a very spiritual connection to the acts of and the products of human expression and imagination. In art, I see "the divine." I have always been attracted to, inspired and sustained by it. It permeates and informs all that I experience, and gives me my greatest sense of purpose and direction.
