The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow. In the end, we’re all flawed and fallible. But so what? Let’s embrace it. Let’s have a sense of humor about it. Let’s make imperfect, crazy, otherworldly art out of it. But let’s improve upon it. So we’re all full of shit. Knowing it sets us free. But I’m nothing more than a man with a camera and the willingness to capture the world. Between “I” and “we,” “I” and “universe,” it’s all just one giant, pulsating, cosmic interdependently spread out, and we’re smack in the middle of having the honor to perceive it, no matter how hypocritical our perception may be.
