You look at yourself in the mirror and notice the imperfections that stare back. Some days they seem more minute. Other days show them as loud leads in a play, hollering for everyone’s attention.
A day does not oft go by without an encounter between commuters and the lifeless form strewn upon the pavement just before Les Halles. Though all signs point to a life passed on into the next, the tight grip of a coffee-chain cup prevents such final assertions. He lays there, quiet. Bodies pass without acknowledging […]
Why do I keep having dreams that feel all too familiar? As if I have experienced them before? I swear I find myself amongst my conscience’s projections and telling it that I’ve been here, done this. Three nights in a row?! Perhaps the reason for this sensation exists; one I am not yet willing to […]
The seasonal transition is felt most this time each year. As our clocks step backwards an hour, the days of eternal sun and warm breeze crawl further into memory. Soon we will forget the sensation of seeing the sun set before 6 PM. We will begin to mourn its departure ever sooner as the days […]

Are you a young professional or pretending to be one? Do you have trouble with acknowledging your shortcomings and choose instead to deny their existence for your own self-preservation? Let me be the first to say: Thank Jesus, I’m not alone. What’s up slackers of the world! Fellow procrastinator and terrible relations-keeper here to spin […]
Rejection is rife in my chosen industry. Nothing is ever guaranteed leaving many of the fashion world’s models in blank wonder over what tomorrow will bring. Even promised work can be taken away just as easily as it is given. Dealing with the uncertainty of it all is hard.
