i believe in Solitude and the Violence of Truth
i insist upon loud words in Silence...
4am knows all my secrets...
far too much to say to a deaf audience
keep it about the art -
don't sell yourself out in the name of "popularity", "acceptance" or "validation"
ART is really not about any of those things...
just because an image may have a lot of views, comments or favourites,
does not mean that what has been posted is good...
please do not favourite me in any way or comment upon my junk if it is only because:
* you think i will, or should, favourite you in turn,
* if you're in demand of a response
* or if you think because i commented or favourited you, i expect anything
i don't play those sort of games
i do not use people, nor like being used
i respect you, and myself, too much to do so
- thank you
