"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth."
-Umberto Eco

"The true artist sees the harmony, the wholeness, the tendencies toward perfection in things everywhere." -Guggenheimer, Creative Vision 1950

"What is Art? It is the response of man's creative soul to the call of the Real."
-Rabindranath Tagore, Indian Poet (1861-1941)

blatantly stolen from my myspace bio...

I am a conundrum. I am an enigma. I am a man. Careless with my heart. Emotional. Looking for life and love in places I haven't looked before. Mostly happy, but sad sometimes too. Adventurous, talented, jealous, lovesick, adoring, caring, giving. Is "The One" out there? Does she exist? That what I long to discover.

I don't care if your world is ending today
I wasn't invited to it anyway
You said I tasted famous, so I drew you a heart
But now I'm not an artist I'm a fucking work of art
I've got an F and a C and I got a K too
And the only thing missing is a bitch like yoU
You wanted perfekt
You got your perfekt
But now I'm too perfekt for someone like you

- Marilyn Manson, (s)AINT

"Man was born to love
Though often he has sought
Like Icarus, to fly too high.
And far too lonely than he ought
To kiss the sum of east and west
And hold the world at his behest
To hold the terrible power
To whom only gods are blessed
But me, I am just a man"
