It's really wonderful to work in the morning, totally renewing. I tried a new technique today, gluing a piece of acid-free white tissue paper in the shape of hand down first and then printing over it. I love the effect. Photographs never quite capture these pieces perfectly, but some prints fair better than others. This one lost detail but you can still get a feel for it. The past month or so I've been feeling a little stale with these prints. It's not that I haven't had good prints, but I need more adventure and experimentation. As someone told me today, if you are not making mistakes and messes you're not pushing yourself enough. So I'm excited to delve into this new technique and see where it takes me.

Evolution & Glass
by Jane Hirshfield
For days a fly traveled loudly
from window to window,
until at last it landed on one I could open.
It left without thanks or glancing back,
believing only--quite correctly--in it's own persistence.

“Trust no one” everybody know how this go.
It’s easy to say fake niggas fake bitches this and that.
But really when you break it down it’s deeper that that.
Who can you trust,when they look at you wack, because you competition in their world I’m just comparing the facts.
I’m thinkin you my bitch, I thought this is my nigga but they both fakin the trap.
The mere fact is you can’t trust nobody in the streets, in your home, no where, there’s always a whisper here and there. I had bitches diss me that I still show love to, I have niggas that I still know that still act brand new.
But if you stay the course and you trust yourself and the process you good. All this shit is part of life the right people will fall in place when you on the hustle.

I recently saw a news story about a woman in New York that collected flowers from grocery stores and shops and gave them to people in hospitals and nursing homes for free. 💡 Planning on calling local grocery stores tomorrow morning to see how they manage the food products they can no longer sell. Fielding recommendations and commitments to getting outside and doing work in the community this summer in my DMs! If there is a resource you want to see more of let’s talk about it 🌻🌻🌻 #jerseycity#jerseycitynj#jerseycitylife#jerseycityheights#journalsquare
Someone recently asked me: “What’s your superpower?” 🚀
I had to take a minute and be like 🤔...
Truth be told, I know I’m great at a few things but super...that’s like next level. I wracked my brain for something I’m exceptional at, some skill that would make you be like 🤯.
As always, I was completely over-thinking it 😆, cuz my superpower is so damn simple...my smile. 😬
Do you think I’m actually enjoying this exercise so much that I’m elated with joy?!
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE how exercise relieves my stress, makes me feel strong AF, and kinda lifts the weight of the world for a while.
But real 🗣, it’s not those things that make me do one more rep, it’s that I find joy in the fact that I have the luxury of spending time challenging myself.
In my former life I would have been sitting at a desk at 2pm on a Tuesday, but I took a scary as hell leap and left that life behind, so now, the things that should make me scowl (...like holding chair pose or squatting with a freakin’ heavy kettlebell) make me smile, because shit...I worked hard for many years to have a life that affords me to work on ME.
(P.S. I wouldn’t even attempt half of this madness at the gym if it wasn’t for the best trainer in JC who I’m lucky to also call my dear friend. @cait_giacino ❤️)
Somewhere over the years I lost what it felt like to feel attractive in my own body. It’s taken a few years and tears to feel even the least bit like myself again. Working out again has definitely helped me have a more positive mindset. I always feel most attractive when I feel strong. Shoutout to the team at @blackhousestrong for helping me in that journey. Now to work on being painfully awkward 😅 Rome wasn’t built in a day 😉 #elyunquerainforest#puertorico#blackhousestrong
