There's a world I stepped into that fateful night when I saw a man tie his lover up. When I was amazed by his craft and her surrender. Where I saw him create art with every knot he tied, and every moan she uttered. And I decided, "I've gotta learn how to do that."

I walked into that world and never came back.

“Art is our only salvation from the horror of existence” In a world where such a quote is more true than it should be, I am extremely grateful for fellow collaborators such as @nanobites56 who push with me to make art at a level where existence is just the first step to experiencing artistic joy.
