we ain’t kids no more…

I'm sitting at one of my favorite Starbucks in Miami, staring out the window at the sky. On my left, the sky is covered in ominous clouds that threaten rain and fill me with a tinge of despair. On my right, a bright light blue sky with white streaks of shapeless clouds fills me with [...]

“Love will come set me free” — or, banking on Karma.

I feel like now would be a fantastic time to cash in all the good juju saved in my karma bank. Ever feel that way? exploring, Clouds? of course. let's go. So I'm at the beginning of a hectic few months. at a glance (because that's all i can muster at this moment without becoming [...]
