The room tends to light up when Matthew (or Tucci if you like) enters a room. He's got lots to say, half of which may or may not make sense right away - because I think he's still figuring it out too. Full of energy, words and a big heart to go along with it all. I made this as a going away gift a couple of years ago, and I almost had it finished and Matthew told me to STOP and not finish it. I saw it as A.) fitting for who Matthew is - a little different and just fine with it, not worried about weather he looks 'finished' or not, B.) a metaphor for his life - in that he was leaving what he'd always know to find a new way and he needed that blank space on the page to fill in for himself.
