Patience.



"When out shooting around downtown Houston the other night with a few friends we came across this guy on Main Street, full of character and personality. We started talking with him and he began to share his life story and unique art with us.

This man, who lives on the street, makes paper flowers out of napkins and other various pieces of paper garbage that he finds. His work is incredibly detailed. To me, he an artists in the purist sense by taking "trash" and turning it into something beautiful. He said it takes him about a day to make one of these paper flowers....As we were about to leave he said he wanted to share a song with us. So holding nothing back he sang this song, a song that tells his story, what he believes, his experiences, and his philosophy for surviving each day." -Donald Kilgore
