RUNNING OFF

March 30, 2017

As I settle into my new TriBeCa apartment (and taking a break from making this furniture I took it upon myself to build), I stumbled across these photos from my last trip to California.

Every few months I make a point to drop out, tune off, and dip out to California. Essentially, to escape. And in today’s society, especially for us city dwellers, it’s essential to have an escape. Whether it’s a one-hour escape to central park. One day of turning your phone off. Or a one-week escape to a different coast altogether.

I run back to California for a myriad of reasons. Sometimes it’s the weather. Sometimes it’s from NYC’s physical exhaustion. Sometimes it’s just because I’m craving some really good California avocados. But this time, it was the stress of availability. In 2017, we’re responsible for always being available. Available for our friends. Available for dates. Available for work. For meetings. For events. Were I found I was spending all my time doing things for others, that I was not making time to be available for myself.

And that was my cue. Time to drop off and become completely unavailable. Only to regenerate energy and come back guns blazing and full force.

    Such an amazing look! Totally understand you – my place are the alps with a lot of snow, even if I wouldn’t mind the Cali west coast :)
    Enjoy!

    I love this post. So true that sometimes the best thing to do is make ourselves unavailable for others to be available for ourselves. I love the way you worded that. Also love the shoot location / style!
