"Think of a time/one morning will come/you will wake up/without the feeling that half the world has gone insane… You'll open your eyes/reading your paper/or drink from your cup/no one was burning down the town while you were sleeping… I've never see/but I believe/in a promised land…"
Chris Cornell- "Safe and Sound "
My name is Dan. I'm 40 years old, now on my 20th year in prison. I chose to open with the above lyrics because I feel that they so clearly express my own sentiments. No matter how bad things seem to be, there is always hope. There is beauty and wonder to be found throughout the world if we are only bold enough to look.
I am posting this ad with the hope that it will attract bold. That you will see me for the man I am-or at least take the chance to discover.
The best way I can describe myself is to say that I am an artist. I write poetry, books, essays, and song lyrics-and I draw-though mostly of my nieces now. My interests lie mostly in the arts, especially music. I believe that through art we express our greatest ambitions, our deepest fears, and our most profound ideas. Art is the beauty in humanity and our greatest achievement with that said:
Best book I've read this year: "The ocean at the end of the lane" by Neil Gaiman.
Top three songs currently on my playlist:
Kenny Chesney "You and Tequila"
Silverstein "Replace You"
Chris Cornell "Billie Jean"
I am hoping to make some sincere and meeting full connections. To inspire and be inspired. To take a journey, without a destination in mind, but always looking for something wondrous
