The Fall of Crown Heights…

One, I went to multiple galleries with Sisa’s ex-roommate Rafael. Sisa is a Peruvian indigenous filmmaker who sometimes works at Barb’s. Rafael is a 22-year old artist from Tijuana. Border kids unite. We walked around SoHo with his boyfriend who renovates residential properties, so he and I had a million things to talk about. Then […]

All you have to do is call my name

Today is a level three Owen Wilson “wow” fall day. Might be false fall. But still. My window’s open. The air feels great. I don’t feel, as someone else once put it, like I’m being stung by a million bees. I was able to text Jack to clean up the kitchen without getting worked up […]

TV Party

Ten days ago, Nikola invited me to see Henry Rollins tell stories at a theater up in Tarrytown. So last night we ventured into the continental United States via MetroNorth along the Hudson with a couple cans of rosé. I love public transportation. Rollins was amazing. We walked into the theater as the show was […]

New Slang

The Shins @ Radio City Music Hall with Asani. FREE tickets. I’d never been. It’s spectacular. Breathtaking. Experiencing things with Asani is always frenetic and joyous. We notice the same things. Numbers everywhere. Signs. We’re very similar. Our brains go to the same places. Things I can’t really talk to anyone else about. And she’s […]

For those of us who are sensitive, who have a lens that captures truths, the world can be a difficult place to navigate. We know […]

My baby takes the morning train

Tyler and I got to talking on Friday about his brothers and their relationships. The responsibility they take and the roles they play. The enigmas that exist. How the outside brother in whatever iteration can never really understand how the other two get along so well and what bonds them. Nikola talks about his brothers […]

Let’s hear it for the boy

It’s 4:38. I’ve just gotten home and taken my sleeping pill. Let’s see what I bang out before sleepy time. I have a beach date tomorrow and I’ve gotta be bright eyed and bushy tailed. I was *supposed* to go dancing tonight. I cut my hair. Got dolled up. Put on a face. But I […]
