  • I am a simple vessel with complex overtones, opinionated on occasions but willing to listen. Comfortable with reclusiveness and devoted to privacy and family. Patriotic to a fault and allergic to cruelty, ignorance and bad music.
  • Early risers catch the world waking and see its true colors.
  • The worst thing about me is that I’ll buy albums and put them away on the shelf and forget that I’ve got them.
