His life was a map which constantly got him lost.
Although he came close several times, he could never find his way. Everything was topical: the depressions, the dips, the s-curves.
Success soars like mountain peaks. Doubt plummets canyon floors. Insecurity sinks fast.
So many exits. Too many U-turns. Very little ruse-control.
- He drove north for a love that turned south.
- He drove across the equator in a car with parents who were divided.
- He flew to London and had Earl Gray in a cobblestone cafe (and never wanted to return).
- He took a picture of a homeless man sleeping on the street in Sao Paolo.
He always thought he would be famous but he was always missing a legend.
The longitude and the attitude.
When it came to success and happiness, his life was a map which constantly got him lost.
