John William Waterhouse
There are so many good shows in MTL right now but I can't see any of them until I'm done. Bummer.

Are you afraid of pain? Do you secretly like it? What kind of pain do you enjoy?

A couple of days ago Olga called me a masochist and although I protested at first, I think she might be right.

I use pain to gauge my limits. Or sometimes cross them. It's like a challenge: swim in a frozen lake until I can't feel my legs, work for hours without a break or food, walk a ridiculous distance with super heavy equipment instead of taking a taxi, etc.. it's not because I am bad to myself, it's because I want to know how far I can go. It's always been this way. Is that masochism?
