I don't know. I mean, it seems pretty important to me to acknowledge that you have amazing eye contact, you're very good with people, VERY good with people. I think you're an awesome communicator, and I can see that you're actually listening to what I'm saying. So one thing that's important to me right now is that I convey something that can be comprehended as well. It's important to me to be a person that like, people can understand and relate to. And I also want to relate to other people. You know, give and take, the whole yin and yang. It's very important to me. 

Whenever I walk around this city, or any place I go to, if I'm really being myself and nobody really hears or sees me, I'm just like, oh my god, really!? That is SOOOO important you know? To just be seen, and to see others. I not only want to be seen, but I want to see you, understand you, hear you. Especially with music. People I play music with sometimes are like, okay this is in the key of A sharp minor blah blah blah. I'm like, just play it bro! I'll listen. I do my best to listen. Music TEACHES that skill, the give and take, the conversation. 

I know the truth about the human race. I know one certain truth. And that is we are all the same.

I see so much of myself in everybody else. Everybody I meet, regardless of however they look, I know the truth about the human race. I know one certain truth. And that is we are all the same. Everybody has a mind, a body, and a soul. None of those are from any places with any borders around it. No human being ever chose to be born. Pick your nose. Fart. Burp. Put your fingers in your armpits and smell em. You know? Spit. But be kind to people, be considerate of other people. Kindness is not a sign of weakness. Being kind is a sign of strength, an amazing attribute as a human being.
