People always say 'write what you know'. Well, here are a few things I know: * The world is a lot bigger, and a lot smaller than we think. * Truth penetrates cliché. * Music transcends language. * People are faulty, but a good friend is priceless, even with all their faults. * Nothing is certain. * Love is as close to certain as it gets. * We are all searching and moving forward; life is a journey. It's not where you end up (because nobody knows where that is), but how you got there. * There is no point in being unhappy. * Love is everywhere.
