Favorite Quote:
Life is too short to live the same day twice.


The pencil is a tool of wisdom
Is a storyteller

Legends, fables,

The tales of heroes,

The saga of diary entries,

Flowing from its tip
Is an artist

Drawing a line

To a sketch

To the next Mona Lisa

And everything in between
Is a historian of past, present, and future
Is a linguist of all dialects
Is a slave to the hand,

Writing only what it’s told to write

Leaving behind a trail
of potential
of endless possibilities


Infinitely



Limited.

Your tools are underestimated.
Your imagination is nothing without them.
