"LOVE IS PUNKER THAN PUNK..." ™
"Punk was about rebellion. This aphorism reflects my faith in the idea Love is the only way one can rebel against hatred... We have more in common than differences..."
"WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR WORLD, YOU CHANGE THE WORLD..." ™
"One of my objectives is to identify and express some of the experiences that shape the human/spiritual self; it is my hope my journey will allow me to reconcile those experiences with the man I could become..."
"Freedom is a recurring theme for me. Freewill is the next step... It's only rock and roll, but words have had a huge impact on my thinking and my actions, and I cherish the possibility ideas can still affect us all. It's up to each one of us then to do with those as we choose..."
"There is NO distinction between YOU and the ENVIRONMENT baby..." ™
