Home Gone – ED09

ed09

Derelict home on the way to Safeway. Bunaby.

Fight the good fight. Go out there and prove yourself. Make something out of nothing. Go further from where you were conceived.

Grow.

Look prejudices in the face and pull it forward.

But don’t get ahead of yourself. Always remember who you are and where you’re from.

The behavior of any modern chump is as follows: we always get ahead, not of the game but of ourselves. Shooting first with the ambition of rage, and never asking questions. Screaming and yelling because there’s too many voices all trying to say the same thing.

We have tenacity to get things done the way we want them to get done, but we always forget who we are in the process.

Over time that origin in which we hold so dear starts to deteriorate. A mangled mess of what once was, is now nothing how we remember it.

It’s not as though it’s beyond repair, quite fixable in fact. With the right tools and time, anything is possible.

But in a world where we have to keep going ahead, we look at the things in our lives worth fixing…

And just give up.
