"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."
"I came up with the idea of having a story as a kind of framework to plug elements into, to let the characters have a place to exist and to grow, and to give context to the different sensibilities that the characters have. So, in essence, the story is the glue that holds everything together."
