Don’t you think it’s better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to be just okay for your whole life?

i want a word for the almost-home.

that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.

what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
comfortably exhausted?

i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.

give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.

i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.

Every time I stop in LA, I make sure to swing by and see the homie @andrew_the_kid. He gave me my first tattoo when I was fifteen or sixteen and has been tattooing me ever since, with the exception of some @akira_latanzio originals. Thanks for always holding it down, look out for his work up online, when I finally finish up his site. See you soon brother! | photo: @jessupdeane

LOOK AT THAT ECONOMY OF BRUSHSTROKE
YOU CAN SEE EVERY STROKE S/HE TOOK NOT ONE THING IS BLENDED
AND YOU CAN TELL EXACTLY WHAT THE SUBJECT IS AND WHAT THE SUBJECT IS DOING

I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.
