"Because people are desperately trying to find a way of releasing themselves from this fleshy prison, they turn to you and they see you escaping momentarily and think 'How did you get out?' It's very easy.... You have the ability to, through arts, tongues, create a dialogue to make you travel to places more beautiful than we're ever promised." - Lisa Gerrard.

I love music, reading, writing and engaging in any creative activity that frees the soul from it's "fleshy prison." That's mostly the kind of thing you'll see me write about. I hope you enjoy yourself!
