The best thing that I ever found was the freedom to be myself. I have lived in loss, pain, happiness, and in the eyes of zealous hate. In the end, the loathing that people produce is the cloaked in smiles and what they can get from you, rather than what they can appreciate when they're around you. The best thing I have found is that I am my own best friend, and that no one should try shape or mold your behaviors or passions @ id or ego. Many people that you come across try to offer you the world (in theory and practice) in order to take away a small part of your 'duende' whether economically, socially, or artistically.
My friendship with myself is in part self-preservation and it is in part a necessity that allows me to create, think, and postulate to a particular effect whether that is visually, musically or with the written hand. There is a cost to what one finds, but ultimately we have to supersede the expectations of others without sacrificing that which makes our signature true.That is the best thing I have ever found...'me' within myself. No co-signing, no false approval at id. Me with the wings of an Eagle, soaring like a Hawk above the clouds where thoughts are original. That's the best thing I ever found. Adoremos.
