SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA: HASTA LUEGO & PURA VIDA, TICOS !

The intensity of leaving is equal to the intensity of arriving. After 3 months of living in Costa Rica, I am moving on. My last day anywhere always has me feeling hollow, not fully earthbound. Some final images from my last day:

out of so many prolific graff writers, D U N K was the most prolific for me. i’ll always think of him when i think of san jose graffiti.

SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA STREET ART: SELF IS NOT

HOW IT SEEMS TO ME
Ursula K. Le Guin

In the vast abyss before time, self
is not, and soul commingles
with mist, and rock, and light. In time,
soul brings the misty self to be.
Then slow time hardens self to stone
while ever lightening the soul,
till soul can loose its hold of self
and both are free and can return
to vastness and dissolve in light,
the long light after time.IMG_7503IMG_7502IMG_7501IMG_7499IMG_7498

work in progress by artists Gabriel Dumani and Hein.
