my birthday. dust biting.

Today is another birthday. Last year, I was sailing around the south Caribbean. This year, I have a soul sister from Australia beside me. It’s five in the morning, we’re on our way to Central Park.

In a few hours I’ll be having French pastries and black coffee in Soho. Tonight I plan on dancing to samba.

You never know what a birthday will bring. Here’s to year 38.
