President Obama's Official Portrait by Kehinde Wiley
Morning Post, 2014

"When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour."
Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?
But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.

By night the skyscraper looms in the smoke and the stars and has a soul.
The number of times a skater falls and gets back on his skateboard. The amount of bruised ankles, broken bones even. Unrelenting in their passion to control their mobility. I am sure there is a life lesson somewhere in there...
Do you yearn for that vintage funky grooviness in your life? That Jacky Brown? The old school aesthetic with a sprinkling of modern sex appeal? On When we got style from every corner of the internet to satisfy your ever changing style. You are welcome :)
