@connortieulie appreciation post - this kid and I have been to three countries together, several states, have worked together on countless video and photo projects, have been business partners on several different ventures, and have tackled so much of life together at this point. I’m so grateful for all my friends in the creative community, and it’s so reassuring learning and growing with people as you go. Helping and supporting one another is all we have in this world, and I’m grateful for this kid to do life, business, and learn with while traveling the world 😎✈️
Going back and forth in my head about what I should actually share here since most of you are strangers. This is my dad. He's going to be starting chemotherapy and undergoing a stem cell transplant for a rare blood cancer that he has, for which there is no cure. My heart hurts so much thinking that this could be the last hike we do together. I took for granted the time we have together and now I'm trying to play catch up. It gives me comfort to know that he is completely at peace with however much time he has here, but I'm having a difficult time accepting it. I have vowed that from here on out I am going to love more deeply than I ever have, and try to make every moment count because it can all come to an end at any time. Fuck cancer.
Driven by the desire to be better than I was yesterday. Not at anything specific, but overall.
Growth and the pursuit of infinity.
Not worrying about healing, but rather to transcend all that used to hold me down.
Shedding it as if it’s old skin, an illusion of what I truly am.
