When I was an awkward 13-year old kid, while lying on the floor in my bedroom and gazing at the ceiling as if I was looking into space itself; I somehow started to think about and focus on random ideas of the effects of time. As I continued to think about its implications and how it could be relevant to my life, the more I began to understand just how powerful these nine words could be. I immediately jumped my feet and used a can of black spray paint to graffiti this thought onto the back of my bedroom door. For the rest of my teenage years and until I moved out of my parentís house, every time that I opened my door to leave my bedroom I was reminded to think about thisÖ

From time to time and throughout my life, Iíve overheard a few people make remarks or observations about other people in regards to how perfect they are or seem to be. Just like you canít judge a good book by its cover; no one is perfect regardless of what you think, see or know about them. Some people may have a naturally positive radiance while others may be excellent at hiding everything that is wrong. What I find somewhat amusing about those types of personalities is that they most likely fail to glance outside of their own perspective. Regardless of whom you are and how you feel or think, itís probably not a bad idea to keep in mindÖ
