Reuben with Cathy

"Art is not a mirror held to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it" — Brecht.

I'm a musician who lives a simple but exciting life full of weird and wonderful people. My interest in philosophy stems from both a fascination with human beings and our relationship to the cosmos. I'm known for the completely unfounded statements I make, like (given time and space are relevant) 'musicians create the universe!'

This photo was taken about two weeks before Cathy won her race — it's one of my little 'claims to fame' he he.
