Six things I could never do without
love, redemption, harmony among people and in music, hope, all of Maslow's hierarchy of needs infused with the art of living(i hope that makes sense), fun!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the state of the world. concerns and hopes. diversity of sounds. aphorisms. what i want to create. various other things.
You should message me if
you have something cool to share, if you have questions, if you want to hang out sometime, if you have book, movie, music, website, etc. suggestions/recomendations, or any other reason you can think of.....
