this is a photo of the waterfront in williamsburg, brooklyn. i took this photo on May 3. i also wrote some words on May 3. i don't usually share writing on this page but why not, here's what i wrote that day:
sometimes i worry about how often i write about the same handful of things. i wonder why i keep giving my hours + words to them. but lately i've been thinking that maybe this isn't an inability to let go. maybe this is just part of a process. a continual reworking and revisiting of the things that shape me. .
i write a lot about how i feel more comfortable in transit, more at home in the in-between spaces. about the perpetual restlessness i can’t seem to shake, and the way i sometimes use it to avoid things i don’t want to face. i've learned that if i tell myself i'm moving toward something instead of running away, it sounds better, but it doesn't matter which words i use, my gut knows when i'm running away and when i'm in pursuit. i write about the fear that if i stop moving things will fall apart, that maybe i will fall apart, or maybe my dreams will, or maybe if i pause to rest i won’t start again. .
i write about the question marks and challenges. which sometimes feel like everything. (ah, to be a twenty-something.) things like vulnerability + love + building a full life + why is self-worth so hard + why are they shutting down the L train.
there are other ideas i write over and over and over too. and learning to see that writing and rewriting as growth rather than being stuck feels healthy and also true.
i went to williamsburg to watch the sun set over manhattan. city + sand make for an unusual combination, but it felt comfortable. skyline and the scent of saltwater. the coexistence of where i come from and where i am now. more living, fewer questions, if only for a moment. a present moment. learning to be still.
going to be out of nyc for a while starting at the end of this week, so you're probably gonna get mostly NYC/brooklyn stuff between now and then : )
my friends @wyldermusic playing to a totally packed @blackcatdc!
