after finishing this past year of college (which proved stressful and busy) and being temporarily homeless, i found myself in a state of needing to let a creative spirit out once again.
like in vein with "see you around" and "see you soon", this is abstraction derived from everyday people (along with certain words and phrases associated with them). that are important in my everyday life. these range from very listenable piano improvisations, text painting/motion poetry, and unpleasant geometry. with that, i believe that there is at least a little bit here for everybody to enjoy.
thank you for the continued support. <3
