I long so much to make beautiful things. But beautiful things require effort — and disappointment and perseverance.

A Real Person


"It’s better to burn out than to fade away," Kurt Cobain wrote in his suicide note, quoting a Neil Young Song. It isn’t, really, but it’s an incredibly attractive idea to the depressed. I’d rather go out like a supernova than a black hole, was my formulation of what is pretty much the same…
