Doing art on the street is the best conversation starter and weeds out boring folks.
I didn't take this shot. A woman offered to take our picture. I cropped in a bit. I love that she took this as we were either about to take the "real" picture or right after.
Great show the other night at The Crocodile by Astronautalis and one of my favorite artists Buck 65. Check Buck65.com if you are unfamiliar.
Rainy Seattle day. Missing California.
Depression, self hatred, fear, anger. So incredibly selfish of me.
The places people inhabit.
Ghosts. We're all Ghosts.

Little one with a beautiful imagination
fly across the sky
collide with your shadow
live within your infinite potential
for you are the beauty I never knew.
Thinking of the themes of "Of Mice and Men" as well as the locations. Very interesting use of Soledad (Solitude) as well as everyone just wanting to connect. Isn't that what is common among maybe all of us?
"In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love. There are shorter means, many of them. There is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. Try to understand each other."
— John Steinbeck in his 1938 journal entry
Nice to see family and get some time with people I love.
