Living life as true to myself as I can. Which means what, exactly...
...I've learned I prefer quiet gatherings more often than large parties. I get great joy from sharing seriously goofy moments with people. In those moments, people are open and not self-conscious. I've lived in Brooklyn for 13 years. The things I love about the city are: neighborhood coffee shops with great aesthetic and energy where exchanges with strangers can happen seamlessly; the kind and smiley man who runs the 24 hr. vegetable store/bodega; nodding hello on the street to the owners of businesses I support; the diversity of languages I hear daily; the bus driver that welcomes my hello when I step on and my thank you when I step off; the history and architecture on every corner.
I'm practicing presence, I enjoy my bicycle rides. I like sleeping in.
