Pick One that Pops!
I want people to see me for who I am.
When I had to leave my job as a Logo Designer 8 months ago I picked up a paintbrush the very next day. Starting to produce Art again has filled me with a renewed confidence which continues to grow as time passes.
I sit in the fashion district during the day with other artists in the shade and muse about life, selling the occasional work and smoking the occasional joint. I feel connected with my city; I am totally at ease if even for a little while.
I listen to people walking, sometimes I jot down their comments in my sketchbook. One of the best was when a little girl stopped and said "Daddy aren't they beautiful? They're like the big bang". Her father ended up waiting while she picked out her favorite one then bought it for her. What a great Dad!
I am filled with the same pride a father would feel when I am beside my work, but I also feel like I am standing downtown completely naked, rejection can also be hard.
"In the twilight of our years, we will be judged on love alone" - St. John of the Cross.
To me, this quote asks the question; did you have a love for other people in your heart all these years, or were you just being nice?

the treasures from the wreck.
The answers to life become so obvious after spending time out there.
I realize what is important and I am more interested in it every day.
