pride. patience.

Sunday was Pride in New York City. We danced down streets and drank pitchers of margaritas on hotel rooftops, surrounded by rainbows and love.

I’m settling into my new situation of working remotely. Considering my office is a ten minute walk from my writing desk at home, and it’s in one of the most beautiful buildings in town – with a lovely set of fellow Writers; I don’t particularly mind attending.

That said, I like having my own schedule. Sometimes I’m not popping 9 to 5, usually I’m at my brightest around 6am. It will be nice to take a break of working in unideal timeframe.

I’m particularly looking forward to the stories it invites.

I realized lately that, while I don’t particularly believe in time, patience is a requirement of survival. I feel this way whether anyone is aware of it or not. There’s a level of patience and a level of tolerance that have become legitimate survival elements, particularly during this odd piece of history occurring on Earth at the moment.

I digress…

My favorite pard of Pride was when we marched with the Caribbean float. There were bikinis and feathers and some of the best music I heard that day, along with big shoes and beads.

If all goes to plan, I’ll be in Africa come September. The best thing about New York City, to be, is the cultural diversity – it’s the population. I’ve never been around anything like it, and it’s an honor to proudly say that as a midtown local of six years now – I’m part of it.

solstice. simplify.

Yesterday I celebrated the summer solstice. I watched the sun come up over the east river and dip down into the Hudson on the longest day of light.

As a light creature, the longest lit day is very important. Continue reading

brooklyn. birthday. favorites.

Today is  one of my favorites birthdays. Being a somewhat reclusive Writer, I keep a small tight, global crowd. In New York City, I’ve got a crew of three. Brooklyn gets a special shout out in the squad, and today is his birthday.

Considering that I was dumping him around this time last year, it deserves even more merit that tonight I’ll take him to a swank midtown restaurant and likely drop around five bills. Continue reading

she wanna go

The past few days have been painfully divine.

I love learning. It’s one of the reasons I’ve gotten so far in my career. Learning is a job in itself. I’m not saying I retain everything I study, my father always taught me most humans are educated behind their intelligence. Continue reading

back to the world

After a couple of day hiatus, I am returning back to the world. image

It was an entertaining five-day spree of flying around, sister cackles, hugs, puppies along with the usual plotting and scheming.

I am ever plotting and scheming. Continue reading
