leaving your mark

"Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it." -Salvador Dalí

"This is your one opportunity to do something that no one has ever done before and that no one will copy throughout human existence. And if nothing else, you will be remembered as the one guy who ever did this.This one thing."
-Sam from Garden State

"If you can't laugh at yourself, life is going to seem a whole lot longer than you'd like" -Sam

i'm in love with this painting. i don't think i can begin to describe how much i love it. it's Salvador Dalí's Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln - Homage to Rothko (1976). my mum took me to the Salvador Dalí museum a week ago. if you ever get the chance to go, i highly suggest it. it was incredible. this painting is one of his masterworks and it's ten times better in person. Dalí did his own thing and that's why i admire him so much. he wasn't afraid of doing what he wanted. he sought to stand out and sought to defy the norm. he's sort of my hero.
i've been thinking a lot about how i just want to do something no one's ever done before. set some sort of first in history. i think it would be pretty neat. just sayin.
if you've done a first, kudos. i hope your week's been good. be back soon,
