Photobucket
Dashiell was such an inspiration to me of how to live in the world
I want to share the things he taught me with others

Photobucket
this past Thursday i went to San Francisco so i could hang out wiht one of my other life coaches, Barry McGee

Photobucket
i need a little Barry in my life every few years to remind me “what it’s all for”

the man Jeffrey Deitch!
this was a big success for him as well
Barry was an artist he discovered back in the 90s and now he is having his mid career survey!

LA is so self consciously paranoid about not seeming superficial (i wonder why!) that it will never understand jeffrey and im not sure i wanna even bother to explain it to them
