You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.” –Douglas MaCarthur This year, I truly felt a sense of “coming of age,” which I regard separate from “growing up.” This is because characteristically, I will never lose my jovial youth, it’s just part of who I am. Coming of age for me is an understanding of […]

THE SIREN’S CALL

THE SIREN’S CALL (A modern response to an ancient tale) Run in search of shelter The vast waters call upon As a means to escape the welter, I often become withdrawn  . . . A pattern I reprise A constant need to roam Yet free may I swim, in his aquamarine eyes, A place which binds me home . . . Behind them lies an unspoken deepness The gift of the seas abyss Where freedom […]

 “We go away from the silence into the world of noise as if into a vast buzzing of insects, pushed to exist within the permanent irritation of dissonance. Without silence, we are lost and cannot become still enough to find our way back.” -Mystic Mama  Lately I have been seeking refuge in the most natural way, nature.

It wasn’t until December that I realized this unhealthy pattern needed a perspective check, pronto. Hence introducing, The Gratitude Journal. Each morning I would date a fresh page and start out with an intention for the day. That […]

 Mantra of the Week “An emotion of gratitude will speed the process of all I hope to manifest.” -Morgan Ryan As I entered the main foyer of the newly renovated GUCCI store of Beverly Hills, (champagne flute in hand) something felt mildly ironic as Lorde dreamingly purred in the background “And we’ll never be Royals.” Unfortunately there were no tigers on a gold leash in sight, yet this was nothing shy of a fantasy.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”   -Socrates   Photographed by Evan Woods, Ace Hotel DTLA When I first moved to Chinatown, I was curiously drawn to a large hill on White Knoll Dr. As I ascended, the familiar flow of Jay-Z and Kanye flooded my mind, “Made a right on 79th, I’m coming down South Shore Drive (I remain Chi-Town) […]

“Imagine if the life that you thought you sharedWasn’t really there–It was made up in your mind,Could be anyone, anywhere.“ —Dust Clears by Clean Bandit Looking out my bedroom window, my eyes became fixated on my neighbors kitchen window. There hung a string of dead fish that were strung like clothes on a clothes line. Living in Chinatown, this is sort of the norm, only I hadn’t really noticed it since I first moved in. I think becuase […]
