“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” ~ Marcel Proust There’s something to say about a friend who’s willing to be tear-jerkingly honest with you, in a crowded bar, over a fizzy cocktail.

Music, art, and love for festivals are in my blood. My dad worked in radio, and as a child I was always psyched to tag along to jazz and art festivals he emceed.
