We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer: that you are here; that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

I believe in very few things blindly: wifi, coconut water, notebooks, gray nail-polish, all things Japanese… but most importantly, I believe in supporting musicians (especially the good ones) so please join me in supporting Peter. The music alone will make you happy you did!  

Phox - Slow Motion

THIS MUSIC VIDEO IS EVERYTHING.

Three months ago, I moved to California on a cross country train where I had steak dinner with a man who happened to run a folk concert series on vintage train cars. Yesterday, I rode 13 hours down the coast with said folk/train enthusiasts. Life is really remarkable sometimes.

Read up on this amazing series, Roots on the Rails. One day when we’re all fancy and a little older(/richer), we’re doing this :)

If New York had voice mail I would leave it insane messages day and night. I would tell it how much I love and miss it. The energy. The culture. The Jamaican meat pies.
