A few weeks ago, I was invited by my friend Isaac to play a show at a community garden here in Bushwick. It was one of those idyllic places that reminded me of my college days... with lots of random stuff strewn about, a potluck, and people enthusiastic to be a part of art.
Maybe it's because I've spent the last two summers working so hard I couldn't even remember my own name, but I really wanted to make this summer special. I really wanted this one to count. I'm pretty sad that it's over now, but I do love fall.
And I guess it just makes me realize how easy it is to let life slip by and never remember to cherish each day. How to make each day count.
Here's a few of my favorite memories from this summer :)
It's been about three weeks since I've last posted, which feels like an enormous amount of time on the Internet. And I can't lie... I've enjoyed myself :) It's refreshing to not be constantly worrying about having new content, or stats and traffic referrals. I haven't even come to blogger to check it out!
(Although during my break, I did get featured on Apartment Therapy, which is mind blowing to me! I kind of wish I was aware of it at the time, so I could appropriately brag all over social media, etc. :P)
It's nice to feel a bit of privacy sometimes. The Internet makes us all so exposed. It didn't feel that way even just a couple of years ago, but now, there's really nowhere to hide anymore. I realize there are ways of sharing things online that don't go overboard with TMI, but sometimes it's hard to find a balance. Sometimes you overshare, write something less than intelligent, or post an unflattering picture. We all do.
Anyway, I'm not sure if I'm "back for good." If I'm going back to a regular posting schedule, post in binges, or if it'll just be every once in awhile. My life is going to be changing a lot this year, and my focus has got to be with those things... including planning a wedding, moving out of the city, playing more shows, and releasing new songs :)
I will say that do have lots of pictures from the past couple of weeks, as well as a few leftover summer recipes to share!
