and there (becomes)IMG_0998
this blink. this stretch this
flash of light
in a blue emerald glass
sort of way.
i found drums. to beat
within this. fragility;
this sudden and urgent and
unique type. of light.
and i felt it when i opened
my lungs. and my hips
that i opened. extending
stretching cracks outside
of what i was
comfortable. with that
i forget to this One.
single
rhythm.

post halloween. praise friday.

IMG_0845I am very happy that it is Friday blog family. Alas, my book proposal is still not finished. While this sort of sucks, I’m still proud of what I’ve put together over the past 12 days. 12 days isn’t really that long seeing as I’ve been ranting about coming to New York City to get published for over four years now.

Ok so my book proposal is nearly finished. It took me just over a week. It wil definitely be done today.IMG_0479

I like to sleep on projects. Not in a protagonistic way, although I am a fan of procastinating in the proper circumstances. In cases of my writing, I prefer to walk away from something and revisit. Shake. Repeat.

I’ve been married twice, but no one has ever actually proposed to me. Right now, I’m working on my first proposal ever.IMG_0349 I’ve learned not to rely on other parties to be involved in such an intimate process. So I’m doing the proposal all by myself.

Namaste blog familyIMG_0338

It pleases me to say that someone on craigslist flagged and removed an ad of mine regarding one of my new projects. The reason I’m so happy about this, is because there was nothing about the ad that broke any craigslist rule. Someone literally read the call for submissions and had it deleted.

There’s already a scandal around my new project and it hasn’t even launched yet!

Yesterday I attended a PR Summit at the Grand Hyatt next to Grand Central Station. It blows my mind how much I taught myself firing up this tiny Internet corner to rant. Over the past four years I’ve connected with people all over the world. I’m incredibly fascinated by brands and how they work. Speading messages about them around the entire planet Earth also mesmerizes me.
