“You can’t sit with us!” Just kidding, YOU SHOULD.

Sometimes I struggle to find the right caption that I presume many don’t even care to read. But it’s more for me, and those that might, than for the “others” – my FEW followers – IF I was to compare this account to almost anyone else… But “comparison is the thief of joy…” So here’s […]

#Home

#Home. It should be a bigger word. Not too long ago, I moved miles….  from “home.” Footsteps led by a familiar friend. But, can’t help but see another view from this #track… on my way to a destination called Somewhere – constantly inspired by humans along the way. And when I look back, my path seems […]

Leaving the Firenze Santa Maria Novella station, I am full. Full from adventure, full of […]

New York Isn’t a Place That Misses You…

New York isn’t a place that misses you. But it sure as hell welcomes you back like you never left. Time capsules do exist. They’re distinctive yellow cars scattered all over, waiting for the raise of your hand. They’re speeding up the FDR, flashing your memory film in your #window view… NYC Taxi (at FDR […]

“Welcome to Tennessee, honey.”

“Welcome to Tennessee, honey.” The Nashville clerk said as she handed me my new plate. And there was something gratifying about this official transaction, erasing the hour spent in the DMV. Maybe it was because it was me, myself, and I tracing my steps from the North in my head as I stood there… Those […]
