What's it all about...

My mind is getting overloaded with ideas, stories and plans. So I have decide to let some of the drivel seep out for anyone that finds themselves on this site to either love or hate.

The only other way I can explain this site is to call it a blog with extras. By extras I mean this site will contain my ideas, creative writing, piece of text I'm currently reading, some of my sketches and anything else I feel like sharing.

College Music

February 19th, 2015

A Tale as Old as Time

October 3rd, 2014

The Birmingham Royal Ballet version of Beauty And The Beasty is a little different from the Disney interpretation. I really enjoyed this production: magical transformations, wild waltzes and soaring formations of birds. I was expecting this…
