About Me


"All the world's a stage
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages."

As You Like It - Act II, Scene 7
William Shakespeare

“The Unreal is more powerful then the Real. Because nothing is a perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumble. Wood Rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on”

Chuck Palahniuk
