"It's like the biblical essence of grace, but without psychotropic drugs."

"I suffer from dyslectic paranoia. I've discovered that people are secretly plotting for my happiness behind my back without my permission. It's like the biblical essence of grace, but without psychotropic drugs. I'm a born again agnostic. People live in times and cultures. Our reporting of our events is translated into art forms such as music, film, books, and television. By owning a vintage store, I've learned that the things we sell are artifacts of our culture that renew themselves everyday."
