Photos from Katie Morales Art opening at Zendo

It takes a lot for me to step away from my cave. I'm one who tends to stay in at night and rather work on my stuff. It seems like such a obstacle to go out at night, drive, walk, socialize and especially in environments you don't know much people and your rolling solo. Why go right? I have found that each time I have taken a step out of my comfort zone, entered some place alone I have not regretted it one bit. Every single time I make new friends. See something that inspires me or I hear the exact words of advice as if they were heaven sent or some angel from heaven giving me the message and next steps to proceed in my life.

 I went out after a skate mission with the homies to Katie Morales's art opening at Zendo Coffee, a place I've only passed by a handful of times but never went in because its out of my usual area I hang. BUT what not going to places in your "Usual" area you hang only hurts you, segregates, separates you, keeps your mind narrowed in perspective. I'm happy and very thankful I went! I have seen Katie a few times around Albuquerque and we share a smile and a wave when we do. Katie shared a handful of personal pieces. I was touched by two pieces the most,  a photograph of somebody hanging out a window of a train or bus (Above) to me it says I'm going on a adventure and I don't know where the heck I'm going, the way the subject is looking back at his/her past is moving into a new direction. The lines and bars, very nice! The next is the first drawing at the top. As soon as I started creating art I was able to appreciate it A LOT more. Not just the amount of time that goes in but the person engraves their soul into something and shares that! I see that in this piece.... Thank you Katie for sharing your life and getting me to get out of the house and meet new people!
