Conspiracy Theory

I have to keep this short guys, it's been a week since my not-so-triumphant return. The Latakia- blues are getting to me and I can't seem to get my act together. A friend who has started a cultural cafe wants to exhibit my work, of course this has to be very hush-hush since exhibitions require... Sign in to see full entry.
