Combine raw emotions,
with a vulnerable sense of honesty,
and you’ve got a winning piece.
I wish I could stay honest forever.
But that’s just wishful thinking.
Pencil. Paper. Portraits.
I’ve always loved drawing beautiful women.
But I somehow lost the drive to keep on drawing.
I realized not everything in life is beautiful.
I go where the wind takes me.
I like the uncommon, the unchartered, the intimidating.
Nothing fazes an adventurous soul.
I wish to become an adventurous soul – someday.
My ultimate dream is to just hop on a flight to Siberia,
backpacking westward until I come full circle.
I love the holidays.
There isn’t a season more hyped than Christmas,
and for good reason.
The contagious merriment,
influences even the most jaded souls.
I know, for I am jaded in my own way.
I am now left-eye blind.
It’s been a year since the accident,
and I lost a big part of my life because of it.
But I’m not complaining.
I may have lost my left eyesight,
But I haven’t lost an ounce of vigor for love or life.
I have more than I need.
What didn’t kill me has made me stronger.
With the loss came greater gain,
and for that, I am thankful.
I am healed.
