"Constantly searching without really looking for anything - a paradox. It looks like being lost, but I know I’m just being led. I tell stories of the world we live in, and sometimes of an imagined one where reason ceases to exist. Eventually, it all leads me inward, on a path to knowing myself. I rest in the knowledge that ultimately we are not separate from one another. We are part of the whole.”
