In 1999, I moved in with my dad, his girlfriend and my two "step-brothers." I was 17 at the time, and one of my older step-brothers, Chris, was 27. He introduced me to Salvador Dali. He showed me The Discovery of America By Christopher Columbus, Apparition of Face and Fruit Dish on a Beach, The Persistence of Memory, Swans Reflecting Elephants, and The Hallucinogenic Toreador, which captivated me the most. I was affectively moved.
