This was one of my favorite murals for a while. It’s no longer there. I don’t know why it was removed. It’s been painted over by another image, but I don’t like that as much. This one was found in a back alley of Highland Park near Fig and Ave 56. IMG_3284


She’s creepy and cool. Kind of reminds me of something that would be in a Tim Burton film. And this is the one Neruda describes in the book when he g...

“The funny thing about a lie is that once it has been said and believed, it lives and becomes. It can't be taken back. It sucks all the air from you until you give up and it takes over and you forget how to breathe on your own. It is like those parasitic relationships, but not like the shark and the little remora that politely cleans the shark's skin and sometimes attaches itself to its underbelly. No, it is more like a tapeworm eating someone from the inside out.”
Carrie Arcos, Out of Reach

“I like mornings because each day is like another chance.”
Carrie Arcos, Out of Reach

“Ghosts are just pieces of memory. They haunt us because we don't want to forget. We are the ghost makers. We take fragments of the dead and project them onto shadows and sounds, trying to make sense of loss by assigning it a new shape. Ghosts aren't real.”
Carrie Arcos, There Will Come a Time
