wow, you were a good writer back then. 🙂 reminds me of the storry that the boy tells his mother at the beginning of ‘Where the Wild Things Are. If you havent seen it yet i think you should. I have a feeling that this kind of youth sentiment is going to be a trend or state of mind in 2010.
Aside of this book being incredibly complex for an 11 year old, it became the matrix for all things to come in your life as an artist. In other words to this day you seek out the same answers you questioned as an insatiably creative 11 year old. Think about it.
