...is through his perception of his world. Yowza. Can't get much more pretentious than that. Ugh. But for me (a painter/musician), it's true. The things I see and hear are what drives me. I run on emotion. Not fact, not food, not wealth, not even ideas. Emotions mean so much more than ideas or beliefs. Emotion is key. If you're not emotional, if you don't see things in the world below the surface, I won't give a damn. That's why my girl is so great. She's all about emotion. She bottles it up sometimes the way all girls can, but when she lets loose about something, she really goes with it. She's awesome.
