A: Do you know?

I am a different person today. I have seen many things, hurt beyond measure, fallen in love, out of love, and into the chaotic moments of life burning at my fingertips.

Welcome to the differences of who I was and who I am. This photo captures one night in my life that left me feeling completely out of place; I sat there in my room, alone and in the dark, the differences so overwhelming. We all have nights like these, and I guess I wanted this photo to represent the alienation we all feel at times.
