Love yourself, kiddo

“And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someone’s crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid-July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself.”

Lonley Surf at Beautiful Wategoes

Jorgelina “Lina” Reyero hails from a small town on the Atlantic Coast of Argentina. She’s spent the last 6 years wandering the world with her surfboard in tow and has wound up near the beautiful Wategos Beach. Last month, she mounted a little camera to the nose of her log and captured the beauty of an empty surf. Locally based production company ‘Rest Your Eyes’ then glued up the tapes for your viewing pleasure.

Be Willing to Play as If You Make a Difference

“Contributing is indelicate. You take a risk when you are willing to play as if you make a difference, as if your life makes a difference, as if life itself makes a difference. At that level the game gets fast, difficult, and even a little dangerous. Thank you for your willingness to engage with the issues before you, for being willing to make mistakes and not be stopped by any of it. It takes real heart and courage and commitment to make your vision a reality. Thank you for being that big.”
