I had to take four trains to get to Elmhurst, but it went so smoothly. The A came within two minutes of me standing on the platform. When I got off at 59th the B was coming in and I was able to take it one stop to 7th ave where...

My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love...– Maya Angelou

Written by Charles Baudelaire: Mon enfant, ma soeur, Songe à la douceur D’aller là-bas...
I should do so many more things

Leather coats, bags, and paintings?

XVII (I do not love you…) by Pablo Neruda I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.

Life Reminder # 3
Know your limits.
It’s not easy for me to forget. Although it might be easier to forget.
Real love is where table manners don’t apply
Oh here I go again ...

SUPERBOWL SAINTS! fun game to watch and playing mario kart battle on n64 after...

Life Reminder #1
When on the subway, in a public restroom, waiting on the grocery line, basically anywhere … there’s always those times when you make eye contact with someone.
