“I struggle to even begin to find the proper words that can do justice to how grateful I am for all the support these past 5 months traveling around Europe! Quoting Herman Melville on his subject of unity and community “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with out fellow men.” During the past months traveling around Europe this statement was confirmed over, and over, and over again. It is unique to say the least, how the community in the streets and even online has opened up to each other with embrace and acceptance. Such community efforts on the behalf of YOU made these travels and experiences around Europe possible. It’s a sign of mediocrity when you demonstrate gratitude with moderation! This is why I write back and give my praise, and gratitude to all of YOU who helped assisted directly and indirectly. You all know who you are!
“Trust in the unknown, and go with the flow!” was the ideology of these travels. Some might call it naïve? others Blind Faith? On being able to fly across the world and trust, stay, and live with fellow artists and people that have never yet met face to face. These European Travels could not have worked unless both Trust, and Faith were present by everyone that was involved. Let these European Stories give you confidence on your own personal challenges, as well as the street community at large for relying on, and being able to reach out for support. Support Systems like Wooster Collective for instance provide us all with a wealth of stimulus, information, as well as new street works from around the world. The fact that most of us will never meet each other face to face is irrelevant. What is relevant is that we are all fueling the streets with creativity, art, and courageous new ideas. As a community we are blind to gender, race, or age. The emphasis is on making the
streets bleed with Art. Thank you all again, and again….see you in the streets!!!
I would like to give a special THANK YOU to CHAZ, (London Police), D*FACE, NOMAD, and MS. RIEL as each of these people helped out immensely with support and generous efforts to make the European travels come to life!
Another special THANK YOU also needs to go out to Marc and Sara of Wooster Collective for your Trust, and Faith in these travelogue entries as well as the street Community at large!”
