Five Things

It’s been a crazy busy week, but I’ve been trying to take a quick break now and then to enjoy being back in New York, surrounded by art and creativity.

IMG_24762.  I live so close to the Hudson river now! Perfect for Sunday evening sunset-watching.

Right now I am working on choosing a “beat” for my Reporting NYC Subcultures class and I’m finding it so difficult because New York is so alive with so many cultures and subcultures and sub-subcultures. In the class we are exploring how a city can be a breeding ground for arts and culture and it makes me picture New York as a petri-dish, not growing germs (although that is also probably true) but growing the newest and coolest artists, musicians, poets, writers, dancers, and everything inbetween. I think the city has always been this way and I really hope it never dies. Human creativity is so inspiring to me!
