“I'm hungry for a juicy life. I lean out my window at night and I can taste it out there, just waiting for me.”
Brigid Lowry, Guitar Highway Rose

“Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They are made of clouds and cobwebs. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitement, sprinkled with adventure juice and the sweet flavor of the forbidden. The psyche moves from the realms of the ordinary and takes a delicate step towards the unknown. We know we shouldn't and that is exactly why we do.”

“they do not kiss

this lazy lying down dance of love”
Brigid Lowry, Guitar Highway Rose
