“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue. The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light that does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.”
– Rebecca Solnit
Hello! My name is Christian Russo, a disciple of itinerants, an apostle of the vagabond culture, a confused twenty-year old. This website is a haven for my eclectic assortment of writings. There isn’t an absolute theme among my writings, but there will always be some creative insight, or lesson that I learned. Tardiness and organization are two weaknesses that have plagued me since middle school, and my writing schedule reflects that. Nonetheless, you are here, reading this very ‘About’ page to hopefully gain a vantage point peering into my life and who I am as a person. Well, I am flattered that you wish to get to know me more, but unfortunately an ‘About’ page doesn’t do me any justice. I recommend you to check out my ‘Contact’ page if you have any absurd questions or random comments that I must hear. For further reading and to peer into the crux and crevasse of my soul, scroll all the way down on the main page to read the first blog post.
I am a Web Designer || JS Programmer || Writer || Photographer || English Teacher. I will have a website up and running for each profession, although the first two will be paired and showcased on the same website. There will most likely not be a website for the latter profession, although I do have plans for an educational web application in that department. These are my professions, nothing more, nothing less.
