The biggest thing I walk away from it with is that work can only really be about as interesting as your life. It’s not a theory I’m going to etch in stone or anything but, personally, I feel like the artists that I find truly compelling live interesting lives and have aspects of their lives that are, in turn, reflected in their works.
Not to take away from just pure talent, or skill, abd being able to make something that looks dope, but the people whose work really resonates with me generally have crazy lives and stories that get dragged along with their body of work, and sometimes they’re right on the front page; it’s right next to what they’re doing, because their life is so much apart of what they’re doing.
And this reminds me that a lot of the artists, musicians, writers and human beings I admire find inspiration because they lead interesting lives and have access to doing interesting things”

“Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back.”—Mitch Albom (via futurejimcroce)
