i don't know how to begin.
this is probably the single biggest and hardest thing i've done and now it's whole, done, finished, memories engraved into pixels and film, songs stuck in my head, self-portraits, dreams and secrets, places i've called home, tears, an adolescence crystalized into permanence, things i don't have words for, everything everything
i have taken beautiful photos and horrible ones and wanted to quit so many times but it's always only been for me and i have grown immeasurably and in ways i can't even fathom yet.
this is splendor and flaws, this is a story wrought not in gold but the language of everyday clarities.
this is not an end but a beginning,
thank you for sticking with me this whole time
i won't give up, i'm not scared anymore
i want to remember it all
