Escape to Banksy
Just posting a wee bit of escapism. Banksy is one of my favourite artists of all time. His work has a lot to do with the spaces they are painted in and that might not be able to be seen well in this video because the clips are so short. I'd recommend his book that is full of his images... I have it and I love it. The great thing about this Youtube video is that there are new things that I haven't seen yet. You should also check out his site, here's the link.
I wish I was Banksy or at least had as much impact and genius as he does in one finger. I feel very inspired watching this and it makes me feel like there is hope in hanging on even when that little flickering thought of, 'why?', crosses my mind. The message scrawled on the wall at 1:41 is particularly moving for me. I would love to see the painting of the little girl with the red balloon floating away with my own eyes. That would be amazing upon amazing.
One foot in front of the other, step by step, that's how anything has ever been accomplished. I'm sure this journey will mean something.
I'm going to sleep happily tonight because tomorrow is another day and that's not always a bad thing.
