"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"That’s what we try to do as artists. We try to push something to the point of breakage but stop just before. Sometimes we fail- we break the thing, we’ve gone too far. It’s important to learn where that breakage point is in order to set the parameters of what’s possible. Once you know your parameters, you know what to play with."
