‘Did I tell you about the forest? I'm not talking about a fairy tale forest here. It's not a magical, pretty place. It's not a secret paradise or love garden, it's a dark forest with black trees almost undistinguishable from the black sky that envelops them. Everyone knows that freaks come out at night. But it's not the forest that makes you shudder and it's not the trees. It's not the sudden nightfall, it's not even the slight, creepy whistling you keep hearing.It's the little house in the middle of the forest that really freaks you out. The lights are on, you know someone's home. That's where I live. I've had to create that for myself, I counteracted, I took initiative and created a place of freedom. I've set something into motion in response to a world that didn't welcome me with open arms. That place is not just for me, it's for you to marvel at. Look at me now, no longer hidden, I'll show you whatever you'd rather turn away from. And what are you going to do about it? You're in the middle of a dark forest.’
