All advertising & donations profits are split down the middle with Charaties
One of the few things I remember about my childhood was the ferocity of my dreams. They were so big and strong. They needed to be, for they were responsible for shouldering the weight of a little boy intent on making the world a better place.
I’ve lost more than a few since then. Turned my back on a few more. And now, the few that I have left… are quite literally ALL that I have left.
They’re old and scarred, beat up from battles they shouldn’t have had to fight.
But I swear to God that for them, and only them, I will mount the fuck up and ride.
Be good to each other.
A word from the Artist...
Aside from being my mental lifeline to the outside, this blog is an effort to help provide my beautiful son, Orion, with a little support while I am away. Any profit generated by the Ads on this blog get split between him and a charity that builds wheelchair accessible playgrounds for disabled children.
Aside from that, my spirit pretty much survives on sincere correspondence from the outside world. Letters sent by anyone are more valuable to me than clean socks. Write me, and I'll write you back.

For the better part of my life I have operated under the beautiful assumption that mans greatest gift is his ability to create. And so I do. My name is Dante. I am an artist, a musician, a writer and, above all, a very proud father.
