All artists have experimented with mind altering and chemical substances. Many have succumb to them and many have used them to their benefits. The little blue pill I enthusiastically write about is a simply a method to a means. The result being a certain numbness to the realities of the world. A place where many sharp edges are rendered dull, and sleep comes with relative ease. It is of great benefit when ones is stressed and poked by the unfaltering routine of modern society’s demands. But Valium can only be used and enjoyed on a once-in-a-while basis, as the barbiturate is addictive. I do not personally endorse this activity, I merely pass on my experience as Art and Poetry.
