i have the most belief in music when i know for certain it is helping someone. i have the most inspiration to create when i know for certain that there is always someone i can share with, no matter a friend who lives a block away or a friend i don't yet know living half a world away. i have the most conviction in my writing when i realize nothing astonishes me anymore.
(sometimes i feel nothing anymore, and i sometimes feel again. i find that in the process of growing up, i've un-believed in many things but found home elsewhere)
