Legend

brasilhomeless
Homeless. Sao Paolo. 1995.

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.
