I'm a fan of historic buildings and this one caught my eye 👀 It was constructed in 1903 and named after one of the country's most prominent merchant families. It was recently refurbished and now houses a Chanel and cute dessert store :) // I'm still in the process of coloring in my illustration but just fyi, this building is also known for its decorative multi-coloured bricks #watchthisspace#heartofaklcity#aucklandcity#newzealand
Feel. Feel everything. The hard things. The inexplicable things. The things that make you disavow humanity's capacity for redemption. Feel overwhelmed. Feel angry. Feel sad. Feel afraid. Feel powerless. Feel frozen.
Pick up a pen, a paintbrush. Pick up a camera. Pick up the phone. Pick up your chin. Pick up yourself and look for the spark. Look for the truth. Focus on that light and nurture it, grow it. Reveal the fierce urgency of now. Reveal how capable we are of being repaired but don't lament the break. Nothing new would ever be built if things were never broken.
'Everything has a crack in it. That's how the light gets in'
Go after that light.
