We gotta show'em a better way. came to the coffee shop here my neighborhood and usually is pretty calm but today it's packed and people are talking. Everyone is talking about president Trump and his latest actions and nobody is agreeing with it. I hear talks of fear and worrying about what's next. One person here is a grandfather scared of what might happen to his grandchildren and hope they don't experience a draft like he did as a youth. My father used to box and as a kid he showed me how to punch the correct way ("never put your thumbs inside your fist and don't stick them out you will break'em, don't ever hit anyone's forehead either you break your hand, and use your top two knuckles when hitting they are the hardest") but he always stressed to never resort to violence when dealing with anger unless you have to. At the time it never made sense but I took his advise. We are taught to listen and respect our elders but in this instant while they are dropping bombs we need to drop knowledge.
A huge shoutout to @alexknowbody for making it out at sunrise to capture this photo. Because this building is located next to a parking lot you have to get there pretty early for a direct shot with no cars. I also want to thank @pacificretail @eastridgecenter @gensler_design for supporting public art.
So the other day I took my son on a bike ride around the block and when I got back my other son had taken his deck apart (with some help from his uncle Rich). I don't use spray paint around my kids so it was cool to see him do this on his own. It reminded me the time (late 80's) my older brother created a stencil and customized his skateboard with our last name styled in the Santa Cruz logo. He also painted or last name inside a Batman logo on the side of a freeway. From that point on I was hooked to writing my name everywhere.

Can I kick it? today was the first time my boys asked me to join them in painting. It reminded me of the feeling I had when my older brother let me hang out with him when we were kids. Thanks little dudes I hope we can do this forever. ✊🏽
