"Find what you love and let it kill you."
Charles Bukowski (via kushandwizdom)
So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
The unfortunate circumstance of being a person completely enamored with
the idea of flight, and the sciences of the earth and weather does
not coincide well with someone whom also, experiences intense
motion sickness. Motion sickness is something I’ve dealt with my entire
life as far as my memory serves, I don’t enjoy theme parks, boats, and
especially terrible are airplanes. Back in 2011, it was suggested that
I try using Dramamine to remedy my problem and while it decreased
how sick I felt, it was mostly because I was knocked out cold. This time
around I tried a different dosage, and while I still felt that general “uneasy”
feeling, it was nice to enjoy the view out the window.

So some of you might recognize this lady from some portraits I did of her
several months ago. This time we made it to New York City, and wandered
around to take some portraits. It was my first time in NYC or anywhere
near the east coast, and it went by waaaaay too quickly, but I rode
the subway, and had conversations with a lot of super ( and surprisingly)
nice people. I’m super stoked to go back and visit some time soon and explore some more.
