The music thing is a little more complicated:
I really enjoy music, but I didn't grow up with it, and don't have the same connection to it that everyone else does. I have a terrible memory for music and I am basically tone deaf. I don't have any songs that helped me through a profound moment in my life or anything like that, and I missed pretty much everything about music culture. :(
- My parents' encouragement of my curiosity
- All the books I got to read as a kid (My first book was The Night Before Christmas).
- The people that I attended Art School with and were basically my family
- The amazing people I have gotten to know over the years
