#MotivationMonday: No matter how tacky this hashtag may sound, it makes you realize what motivates you.It's easy to fly through each day. You can end up like a speeding car on the freeway. All of the scenery becomes a blur. What sparks you? What reminds you of your passion and why you do it? What makes you want to work even harder to bring dreams to fruition?
I spent this Monday in LA's Art District. Life in San Francisco has left my eyes thirsty for street art (and just art in general to be honest).SF's suffocating rent prices have pushed out artists and galleries. When I find myself in Los Angeles I usually spend my days roaming around Melrose treasure hunting for street art."If you really want to check out street art why aren't you going downtown?" my Uber driver asked as I hopped out of his car at Fairfax and Melrose.
Downtown LA is foreign terriorty to me. Beyond visits to the LA convention center to check out the LA Art Show every January, my number of adventures in downtown LA is next to none. The very industrial Art District is one big outdoor gallery. The streets were empty this afternoon. Tourists that flock to Hollywood Bloulevard and,really,any attraction listed on Lonely Planet,were nowhere to be seen. Me and my camera roamed the neighborhood streets that form an art lover's wonderland. I'll take this motivation back to San Francisco with me and save it for a rainy day.
