The other night, a friend told me I was more vulnerable and more open, which he found wonderful. You come to understand that the only thing that is important is your connection to people. It's like you have a magnifier in your soul. Everything that's important, everything I've always believed spiritually, is magnified. I just feel it so much more now. Another artist friend of mine said that I could look at this like a blank canvas that I could look at this like a blank canvas that I could envision and then create the rest of my life. It took me a while to absorb what he meant, but now I see and feel what he means.
