Why do we need DEBRITI?

(Please use our Air variety Debriti for this purpose only) Throw “Caution” to the wind or gently lay some positive thoughts on the precipice of a mountain? Now you can with 100% all natural, recycled and biodegradable Debriti. Our counter sales force will help prescribe or assist you in your decision making process regarding what you actually need to give you more Z-I-P and D-A-S-H in your step, fill that hollow part in your soul, behold that word that might just turn your luck around or create that visceral phrase that will help you even the score with an over zealous co-worker. With DEBRITI you can now literally drop some S-C-I-E-N-C-E.

Manual Text dispensary offers many varieties of Debriti and options to choose.

“56 Beaver St.” is a book of photos and a screenplay. It is a story and an accumulation of Erik Wesselo’s experience as a foreign exchange art student in NYC during the 9/11 crises and the aftermath that played out in his life in America during that time.

“56 Beaver St.” the screenplay is a story about a foreign exchange student who experiences 9/11 first hand as his home 56 Beaver St. is condemned in the aftermath of the catastrophic event. He overcomes homelessness and a nomadic existence and with a bit of luck secures a vehicle where he escapes the upheaval of NYC and drives the U.S. interstate to Los Angeles to seek a dream and find a way back to reality. However, dreams have a way of getting in the way of reality…

“56 Beaver St.” explores the issues of being an outsider in a familiar culture, the trauma of PTSD and living / existing during a time of great cultural upheaval presented in a poetic-realism sensibility.
