When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When life gives you anything at all, water it down and sweeten to taste.

I love creating things. The process of taking the first spark of an idea or a problem, and molding it into something entirely new and tangible my joy and my drug. Sometimes it’s a guilt-free pleasure, but, just as often, I wake up from a creative trance and realize I’m knee deep in chaos. I don’t mind, but do sympathize with my poor family.
