Day Two New York.
Day Two Window Reflection Proof of Existence Self-Portrait.
Day Two New York was gloriousness from the top of the morning to the close of the day.
I walked and walked and walked in the heat the heat the warmth the sun beating down radiating golden gold too hot wonderfully too hot, accents all around me singsongsingsong, Central Park wandering stopping shade sitquiet readpeoplewatch look! a lady bouncing through the green on shoes with springs beneath the soles! I walked and walked and walked and walked
every health food store, every raw snack and juice bar trilled siren songs to me and I succumbed, I succumbed, I’ve long been a water-or-coffee-thank-you-that-will-be-all girl, but I listened to the Queen of Vibrant New York, Gena, and walked 25 blocks to Juice Generation, and
