summer solstice

the longest day of the year was on tuesday and i spent it in a yoga class with one of my favorite teachers, who played countless covers of george gershwin’s Summertime one after the other. try it sometime, there’s a lot of great interpretations… not just Janis Joplin, but Joni Mitchell and even Sublime – which made it to my Summertunes 05 mix. it never actually registered to me that it was the same song.

this weekend is action packed. if you have the opportunity, be sure to head out to mccarren park in williamsburg for the Renegade Craft Fair featuring my special friends The Department of Craft. and of course, the annual spectacle that is the Mermaid Parade.

have fun everybody!

the city that sleeps sometimes

not a lot of people on the streets at 5:45 am… trash cans rolled over into the street, garbage strewn everywhere. empty sidewalks and open delis. birds. but fast car rides and morning breezes. that’ll wake you up.
