Danny and Annie’s Love Story

“I could write on and on about her.... In my mind, in my heart, there has never been, there is not now, and never will be, another Annie.” If you're anything like me, walking through the grocery store checkout can be depressing. It seems like every day some artist I look up to (or at least up at) is getting a divorce or having an affair....

The Void

I prefer to live in constant distraction. I do whatever I can to occupy my mind. I make my life busy. I keep my life noisy.  I try to avoid the moments when everything is still.
