"i observe the world around me then translate what i see through words and visuals as a form of meditation and at times penance."
mb was born and raised in urban Los Angeles and is a Gen X’er who chronicles and scrawls about the art form of living in the Angelino metropolitan environment. these offerings are inspired by the mental health crisis in the city, everyday observations, and human nature interjected with fiction based on non-fictional events.
mb personally battles depression and anxiety, but utilizes writing and art to self-regulate. this blog was started as a self-promise to start writing and painting again after being AWOL from the process for several years. mb feels most alive when in old spaces, museums, book stores, learning about the 30's and 40's, old movie houses, historic hotels, all the speak-easys in the city, the Beats, all folks who go against the grain (for the good of humanity and liberation of the mind, heart, spirit and soul), spirituality, and the world in general.
