Some things last a long time ...

...  and some things last a lifetime.

I have loved this song by Daniel Johnston for many many years. It means a lot to me and I'm sure as well to other people. I watched him live  in London last year and it really was one of these moments when time stood still. I think Daniel is an inspiration to all of us. A pure heart.
If you have never heard or seen any of his music or art then start by watching the documentary "The Devil and Daniel Johnston". 
I started hand-lettering the quote in the evening and now it is 4:15 a.m ... I must have listen to the song 30 times over and completely gotten stuck in the moment. Nice.
