A Letter To My First Love,

To Brussels, I won’t even waste my words on the hateful people that have tried to take on the magical, eclectic little corner of the world that you are, because their mission to destroy everything that embodies beauty, love and light is in vain.

Inspired by: Jackson Pollock

This isn’t the first time I’ve splurged on an artsy item, and it probably won’t be the last.
