If you’re trying to support your family, you’re going to get a different level of insights. If you’re trying to support your community or humanity, you get insights most people never dream of. That’s really been the secret to my 38 years because those are my real goals."

We are all pieces in a giant, fluid puzzle, where the smallest of actions by one puzzle piece profoundly affects each of the others. You matter, your actions matter, your art matters.
