I’m in a very Virginia state of mind.
Before flying home yesterday, I got to assist my friend Tom in a Calvin Klein makeup photo shoot.
Fashion shoot food is incredible. I couldn’t help but be the rebel who dug in first.
Almost too pretty to eat.
The generous Calvin Klein reps wouldn’t let me leave without a bag full of products.
Once the shoot was over, I kissed New York goodbye and hopped the plane to Richmond, Virginia.
That sinking sadness appeared when it was time to leave the city. In a strange way, I love that sadness, even though it’s difficult. It’s like my own little exploration of life’s adventures.
I filled my NYC void with a fiesta of a dinner that said nacho time for sadness.
The more we experience, the more we accept. Experience births acceptance. I may not have an issue with saying goodbye now since I’ve said it so many times amid my travels. Patience though, is something I have to work on, because I’m used to being overly-assertive and clearing paths for that which I desire. It goes without saying that whatever we perceive as difficult is just a less experienced action.
You never really need to say goodbye because the memory forever endures.
Rushing minds, fluid walks, the hum of dialect. I find myself wanting to talk to everyone here. Who are you? Have you gotten hit by a car? Lost in the subway? The stories are boundless. I love knowing any day I can waltz out to the streets filled with people absorbed in their own worlds, making my world a tiny hair of the dog. 😉
I’ll see you again soon, New York and perhaps for a much longer stay.
What better way to lose your worries than in the masses of chaos?
And there’s always room for growth when you invert.

Happy hump day friends.
