hard to keep mind over matter. time is running thin, blurring together like all the dreams one has in the course of a night. images seen whizzing by on a bike, doubling back to snap it before it’s been replaced. in many ways the same as us humans.

one of my favorite things about summer in new york is how fresh squeezed lemonade is available at every turn. but undoubtedly, another best is the people. always keeping it real…on the subway, on the street & on the stoop.

not perfect.

first real night shot. not perfect, but it’s a start. without a tripod.

the world is full of messages with many a soul sending out a sos. yet, maybe albert einstein said it best, ‘reality is merely an illusion’.

summer recess. how many years ago was it since you truly had one? i’m talking about the days before your first job in high school…when you were on summer ‘break’, free to do what you wanted, when you wanted, where you wanted. well my new rule is it’s a requirement at least every 10 years, if not sooner, despite being a grown up now. it’s just so necessary.  it was the summer of 2000 that i moved to whistler and ran free like a child for 3 months, doing me a world of good. somewhat instinctively, i must have known it was time, as it just hit that ten year mark and my unplanned summer in new york is giving me that same awesome feeling. i highly recommend it.

keep bringing on the lazy lemonade days. carefree and lackadaisical, full of spontaneous and unknown adventures and no joke, FREE EVERYTHING!!! outdoor shows, parties, premieres, movies, museums, workshops, festivals, fireworks, parks, tee shirts, coozies, posters, drinks, pilates, sights, sounds and smells. bands like band of horses, the strange boys, she & him, lucero, metric, cut copy, !!!, d.o.a., ted leo & the pharmacists, murder city devils, the xx, chromeo, delorean, neon indian, ninjasonik, future islands, and lee (funk-n-soul) fields ! honestly, ridiculously amazing. ridiculously free.

i’ve got a mini infatuation with this phenomenon….and always on the perpetual hunt for more eye candy. there’s alot of hype and debate going on out there about who did what and who’s a fraud and who’s idea and who’s style and who’s selling out and why. but in the end it’s all street art to me. refreshing.

i was so excited to go see the free she & him show, but who spends 4th of july alone?? ME. that’s who. loneliest lonebird on the lone planet™. but i made the best of it and biked over to the governor’s island ferry. thank god i was a biker because there was a line longer than the great wall of china for the walking folk. and thank god too, for zooey deschanel…whose voice gave shivers on a scorching day. and yea, she is one hot piece of babe.

up next was a bed-stuy BBQ where full beers were being hucked at the metal band playing on the roof. in true hesh form, they apparently loved and encouraged this kind of thing. keep it dirty, keep it hesh. all in all, a day long shred and bmx session on the ramp, hot coals and fire breathers = fun times. thanks to matt lilly and jammi york for hosting us peeps. you saved my 4th of july. <3

i met a boy named joey (who ended up being the world’s biggest liar), while simultaneously chancing upon a live sex talk by none other than the infamous dr. ruth. and oh…i got my poster shot!

the best hidden secret gem of new york city. ahemm….city? grassy knolls, sand dunes, waves and refreshing ocean breezes. welcome to fort tilden. well worth the 30+ miles roundtrip pedal pump. but shh. don’t tell anybody. yyyyyeeeeaaaahhh!

you know those places that you’re certain you will get to someday, but you just don’t know when? the nostalgic draw of coney island has been looming for days, months, years!! i had really wanted to experience it with my dear P, but we sadly never got the chance. finally made it there (unplanned) on the busiest of all saturdays…for the mermaid parade no less. i was actually on my way to the opposite end of the city when i bumped into some hot mermaids on the subway. they immediately took me under their flippers and tried to transform me into one of them, slathering me with glitter and gold and enticing me to take my top off. ha! as the story goes, we arrived too late to see all the floats and the king, LOU REED, himself…but i finally got to cash in on the freakshow and clam boob oogling i waited so long for. next time i’m going to try a weekday night.
