My Manifesto

I look beautiful because I look weird and I am beautiful because I am weird.

Weirdos care.

At the same time, care less.

The definition of peace: saying yes to everything that happens. No more complaints.

Be braver. Work on interesting things. Don’t make boring art. Don’t make untruthful art.

It’s good to be scared. It’s ok not to know. Most of what we think we know is really just fiction to get us to comply.

Dissemble traditional power structures. Dismantle normativity. Mainstream culture is a trick and a sham.

My attention is valuable. Be intentional.

“Be impeccable with your word. Don’t take anything personally. Don’t make assumptions. Always do your best.” — Don Miguel Ruiz

Be kinder to others and myself. Treat everyone like they are the only other person in the world. Make them feel famous and significant. This involves eye contact.

Be a mystic more than a rationalist.

Ideas are powerful things.

Every day I learn, I am alive.

Every day, learn I am alive.

Life isn’t supposed to be easy.
