Statement

As a child, for every store I passed, I took a business card.
Every place I visited, I bought a postcard.
And each pencil point that broke when it was sharpened, I kept them in a little box along with all the others.

Accumulate.

As I grew up, and entered adulthood, I stopped putting together different objects that caught my attention, and began to collect emotions and feelings. Thoughts and life situations that have shaped the person I am today.

There are days when I have so much information in my head that I wish I could go back to collecting pencil nibs.

In the end I have realized that all those emotions and feelings come and go, and only stay if I decide to. I have realized that the best way to live, is not accumulating what I perceive from others, but being able to skin my emotions until they become strokes (of paint).
