I start an internship soon with Steve McCurry’s studio in Long Island City. It will be three months of full-time go go go between commuting and photos and trying to stay afloat above city sidewalks and bobbing passerby, but I am excited.

In the interim – just like everyone else in the city sea – I keep busy with too many photos to edit, late dinners, dog duty, transferring my life from one new place to another newer one, forgetting to over-water the plants, making phone calls, baking brownies, and trying to keep the apartment clean (I’ve traded thick dust and dog hair for grey grime and dog hair).

There are people everywhere, and I am one of them. We throng!

Throng strong, babies. Upwards and onwards.

Be well.
