I love those mornings when you wake to darkness and no one is asking anything of you. You’re under no pressure to exist. This is something of which I am in constant need.

I always listen to Board at Canada at night, completely sober and my mind goes to landscapes: just floating around in vastness, being alone in the middle of the ocean, just floating there, like there was nothing that could harm me, even if I sank to the bottom; floating in space and not ever having to breathe, getting in the pool at night after everyone’s asleep and laying on my back with my ears underwater so all I hear is the sound of my own breathing. I never think about anything frightening when I’m listening to them, I’m always entranced. my mind wanders and I let it roam freely because I know it won’t open any doors that should remain locked.

Just found out that an artist that I loved very much, Bryan Nash Gill, passed away last year and I didn’t even know about it. I contacted him a little over two years ago for the first time about his art and he became very interested in my thoughts and point of view about his work. We talked about our families, how the history of art of relatives influenced us greatly when we were children. We spoke for about 8 months via email and I had even contemplated getting a tattoo of one of his beautiful woodcuts, to which he was very flattered and excited. I just revisited his site for the first time today in almost a year to find that he passed away unexpectedly from natural causes.
Rest in peace, Bryan Nash Gill. you were such a kind spirit and I always enjoyed your emails when they’d pop up in my inbox.
Here is a nice video about his work and process.

I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.
