Seattle, July 2014

You were always the one. Always the most beautiful, the one I loved above anyone else, the one that had my heart, alone, from the day we met. And I regret that there could have even been a moment that I didn’t show you that, that you didn’t see the absolute adoration that I feel for you. There was a time when we were happy, and I see it every time I look at these photos, every time I see the way you looked at me, and I want the world to be able to see you the way I still see you. You will never be replaced, never be forgotten. I will never love anyone the way I love you.

For 2014

stop letting your resentment of the rich kids stand in the way of surpassing them.

go commercial. being a whore won’t prevent you from doing great work. It’ll just give you more time and money to do it with.

on that note: no more day job. make art your living. your life.

shoot film. everywhere and anywhere possible. shoot more film than digital.

stop being afraid of studio work. don’t let the northwest winter kill your productivity.

paint. draw. write. stop limiting yourself.

find a home. carve out a life. the time is right. the pieces are in place. do it.
