This is a narrative of these struggles-to locate your precise voice on your paintings and on your lifestyles. And the simplest part?

You pretty well realize it has a cheerful ending.(5) 2 it isn't fairly approximately that final one.

five aside from what occurs to the dog on the fertilizer plant. I admit, that half is more or less a downer.
