Event Full

Last year was full of creative highlights in design, art, and music. Have a look at some of my highlights.

One of the great functions of art is to help us imagine what it is like to be not ourselves, what it is like to be someone or something else, what it is like to live in another skin, what it is like to live in another body, and in that sense to surpass ourselves, to go out beyond ourselves.

- Adrienne Rich

First memories, the dearest.

As a child, I was absolutely mesmerized by the vast sky and soothing breeze – it was just so wondrous and vast. My most unforgettable memories would be those of the raw and colorful landscape and sky of Trinidad. Most dear and memorable.

Some people care too much, I think it's called love.

- A.A. Milne
