It comes in waves
It came more frequently when you were young
It’s familiar, but you’ve forgotten it exists
And when you’ve remembered
Sometimes it seems completely unattainable
As if it slips through your fingers and your mind
Making you forgetful
That it was ever there
But It burns
In a euphoric way
Sometimes in your gut
Sometimes your mind
But mostly it burns
Where you can’t feel much
From something else within you that you can’t place
Sometimes the greatest things
Can’t be touched physically
Because they cause
And that feeling, the harnessing of it
Can change everything
Ironically, it’s in everyone
All the time
Sometimes everyone forgets
And waits for someone else to remember for them
Maybe changing something like the world
Is for the brave, the resolute, the unyielding
But you forget
That you’re all of those things
If you have a reason to be.

(We do wild, you do wild.
We show you ours, you show us yours.)
How it works:
1: We do something utterly crazy and inspiring and post it here.
2: We dare you to go do your own interpretation of it. And document it.
3: You send your adventures to us and we’ll post them here every week, on a friday, for a month.
So, for the month of February, here’s how we got wild…
WEEKLY WILD #5
IDEA + FLIGHT = CATALYST
We stretched down one of the usually quiet streets of Los Feliz, all of us brandishing ginormous kites. Ready to take to the sky. We lunged down, prepared for take-off, and leapt forward. Down the entirety of the street, blurs of faces sprinted by. Flying above them, a chaos of home-constructed airborne contraptions. The bright red kites were smeared with white paint that read together: “Idea + Flight = Catalyst”. Strangers were overjoyed, old men scorned. Neighbors stopped to stare, cars screeched at the sight of us.
We pioneered the sky and got wild once again. To prove that all it takes to make an idea happen, is a little flight…
So, look. What do we really want to do? We have a pretty overt and steep mission: change the world. We have a large ways to go, and a whole lot to do. So we’re starting here. You and us. Because someone has to be the revolutionaries, you know?
We’re hopeful. We’re greatly naive. We’re determined. And we refuse to be anything otherwise until our job is done. This is just the beginning. Together, it’s going to be hard to stand in our way.
So, let’s start.
