It Caught My Retina: New Retna/Mac Mural Up

Ya know, one of these days I’m going to quit just lazily thinking about doing it and put on my walking shoes for an extended excursion along Jefferson Boulevard from Figueroa out to the top of the soon to open Baldwin Hills State Park — in large part because the thoroughfare (that I regularly traverse on my bike commutes to/from work) courses through enriching and eclectic communities, and is absolutely full of awesome, such as this very new east-facing mural (click to biggify) from street artists Retna and The Mac that I found Friday morning at Chesapeake Avenue (pinpoint map):

Deciphering the installation’s highly stylized text takes some doing for this noob. So far I’ve found the words “barrio,” “brother,” and “love.” Can you make out any others?
