Мария [muh-ree-uh] adj: of the bitter sea

i kissed a beluga whale once - their heads feel like sporty butt cheeks. other than that, i'm not much of a water person. i was born in plovdiv, bulgaria, to a french professor and an engineer, months before the collapse of the soviet union. at the tender age of 16, i declared i wanted to be an artist living in montmartre. it was around the same time i discovered my favorite book, tropic of cancer by henry miller
