___Life is Love___
With the cold advancing from the sea, I ran through angry streets as the rain began to beat down on, questing for firewood on the behest of my woman. Back broken, I dragged some logs home to find @happy_hestia at work. Wow. When I reflect on winters past that I spent alone,wondering the streets to any place that would have me, trying to hustle meals, homies couches or a couple Hundie for a fix, this life we have now seems wonderfully surreal. Like I’m watching another man’s life from beyond the grave on some “it’s a wonderful life” tip. I rewind it all back to 2001, childhood and a warm home with two young parents trying to navigate a new South Africa and each other and realize just how much of this experience is out of our hands, flickering rapid like a reel speed forward. What I see in the pictures is that we give each other meaning. Through each other we make it through and don’t all together. Reckon success is gathering up a rich existence imbued with wealthy moments. Everything we do should be in service of that vision and not the strange egocentric fomo that often drives a lot of that burning desire to be “someone”. I remember when we toured Necktie and just how sick, hateful and unhappy I was while riding the wave and it’s clear that things, attention and money are temporary solutions to a bigger existential search for fulfillment that we are all on, conscious or not. Through the fires I’ve learnt that the only things that truly fill me aren’t out there but in here somewhere and that all the struggles are fights for la familia, honest art and a good home. This is what we do this shit for and why money means a lot to me. Not for Gucci but us. Don’t really know what I’m saying but it’s in there. Sending love to you, yours and there’s. X.
