Pardon my bluntness, but New Years Resolutions are bullshit. Why so much hate you ask? Because most people make them out of feelings of societal obligation (something I abhor), not because they actually WANT to change something. Sure, most people really do want to lose weight, exercise more, save more money, give up (insert your biggest vice here). But there’s a big difference between wanting something to happen and actually putting in the work in to make it happen. If you REALLY want something, nothing stands between you and the Thing. (Sidebar, same goes for people who say they’re “too busy”. Bullshit. You’re not too busy, you’re just prioritizing other Things). Resolutions often fall short at the part of doing the Action. But why does this happen so often?
I have this thing with painted walls. And not just the famous Disney walls, or the “purple wall that started it all”. Lately it seems every time I turn the corner I’ve spotted a new mural on the side of a building, or what I like to call “free art”. So I thought it would be fun to start a little series showcasing different public art murals, a little series I’m calling “Wall Crawl”. Like a pub crawl, except instead of booze you get a free dose of artistic inspiration.
