an NYC Observation - written May 31, 2014

It’s a strange sensation being back in NY. I feel more foreign than I ever did before. Everything seems wondrous to me.

The massive piles of garbage.

The high prices in what used to be considered the hood.

The rampant homelessness.

I am completely in awe. 

It’s all so familiar still very distant.

I mean I never really fit in anywhere. Now I’m floating down 42nd and I feel like an apparition in my own city. A place I’ve called home. 

Perhaps I’m more aware. These bright lights seem brighter and everything is more clear. 

Walgreens even seems over the top to me now. 3 or 4 floors of stuff. 

Everything is sharper. My awareness now keen. 

Haven’t seen this girl in 2.5 years!! She’s officially one of my international besties lol We’ve now kicked it in 3 different countries #GlobalNomads (cc: @yolofahad)
Believe it or not.. This is my first time buying my own professional performance mic. I am very exited. #sennheiser#germanmade#professionalsinger#microphone#mic#guitarcenter#musician#live

You know you’ve touched some hearts when not only do people cheer but a girl gives you her birthday flowers as a thank you for singing a few songs. I was too stunned to say happy birthday so this post is my way of showing gratitude. I’m very grateful for your kindness and I hope you had a perfect birthday in NYC!!
