It’s incredible to be in a place where, although it’s exhausting and hard in almost every way, I am reminded that there are people who are intellectually stimulating and conversations are not vapid and void of ideas and life. It’s interesting to be back in a city that sort of ate me up and spit me out like many (although it took a decade and a half for me) but here my creativity thrives. Ideas come to the forefront of my mind. I feel motivated to be creative. I feel things that I haven’t felt in 5 long months in Florida and yet here it’s all normal and easy again. I feel a sense of me as I haven’t felt in a very long time. And it may be the city. And it may be simply having a small piece of reality again. It may be simply being amongst people who are intellectually more complex than those I’ve encountered of late. I could hypothesize forever but it’s nice to actually spend a few days in a fast paced city where my brain thrives and feels active, stimulated and it’s easy to think and create and easy in so many ways that I never thought I’d say about New York City. I miss the palm trees in Florida but fuck I do miss the energy and people here. And it makes me want to write!!! And that says it all. It’s soooo nice, oh so nice, to finally feel inspired. It’s been far too long…..
Below are some experiences and things that have spoken to me recently….and honestly who can resist Simon Le Bon or the beach…
and there was Rod and morning green juice….
I liked this piece…
The view doesn’t suck in Florida even though I feel stifled.
I honestly am not sure what this means but it spoke to me and I probably should take it in but I love to love with my eyes OPEN.
My purchase at Art Basil…..this is a mental work in progress but clearly I am here for some reason. I just can’t figure out why……God, I hope I figure out why soon…..xoxo to anyone who gave s shit to read this.
