Today I went out with a friend who is very dear to me. While I stayed here in my hometown she has moved far from here, exploring and experiencing life, coming back only to visit family and a few friends. Among the usual things we talk about (school, work, life) the topic of her departure to Mexico in the next 2 days arose. And from this the topic of travel. It makes me sad to see myself stuck here while others walk unfamiliar paths. I want to travel too. She asked where I want to go, what I expect…and I found my responses too vague and unsure to offer any answers. I really am too naive sometimes. I expect that one day I can just leave everything behind, wander through an unknown country, and that everything will turn out fine. It hurt to hear her say that she was saddened by my still being here. It really did. But she says I can do it. I’ve always told myself these things, but sometimes you need to hear someone else say it. I will leave Ontario, California. I will.

Beautiful song off a gorgeously well-made album.
Another corporate commission (12 meters by 2.5 meters) this time for Starcom in London (apologies for the crap photos… the light was bad by the time we finished the install)
