My site has been growing in thought and views, so I would like to see a community express anything small or large that may otherwise not have a larger voice on the web. I have learned over the years that, while ideas can pick up momentum themselves, sharing a concept and inspiration with others is both fulfilling and can create the smallest spark to an otherwise sedate flame. If you have any original ideas that have manifested in the form of built space, art installations, writing, photography, art, CLICK for more
