Icy trees swaying behind a sightless wave of water
The sun beams lighting a pathway for many birds wordy
Sashaying of leaves making conversation with one another
The sky seems to be held up like a child by the cerulean backdrop on a fall afternoon
Words being whispered, wrapping around the countless thoughts of humanity being displayed out loud in quickened whispers
‘How have you been?’
‘Where are you going?’
‘She was bad…’
The essence of simply being in the midst of verbal movement creates an odd sense of peace
It’s a science to understand the function of mere English phrases.
Cracked floors leading an erratic pathway to emptiness
This is just an hour within a day in Manhattan…
- ‘The Park Bench’ by Kyle Leon Norville
Summer has arrived!
Or at least that is what I think has happened.
With that thought in mind, me and my good friend Dilyon hit the road and ended up in Manhattan at The High Line Park, which everyone should go to, and, as Dilyon is a fellow artist, we got to talking about music and recording.
It’s no coincidence that our sleeves are rolled up. It was hot and windy and letting that breeze hit you as much as possible is a great feeling. I sometimes like to think of sleeves rolled up signifying two things:
1. You’re getting serious.
2. You’re in chill mode.
I’m thinking you can guess which of the two options we were in.
With Dilyon being a Harlem resident, it is refreshing to see the style contrast from someone who actually lives there. My personal vision I must admit is skewered from having seen many of the same outfit styles in Brooklyn. My idea of how African-Americans dress stretched across the bridge to the point where I cannot tell where someone is based off of their style ( Sometimes it is apparent though.) But alas, it is not the borough that defines what specific outfit you must put on, but the individual that makes their own identity.
Now to talk about first times. This is my first feature with another person on my blog. This won’t be the last.
This was actually my first time putting on these boots and first time actually daring to not fully match my outfit. I call it a success but that’s my personal opinion.
Don’t be too afraid to go out on a whim and have a bold piece with lighter blends to draw less attention to it. The shoes were meant to steal the show for the outfit. I think I succeeded. Oh, and ACCESSORIZE.
If you’ve notice the hairstyle too, it is indeed also brand new, and believe it or not, my head was throbbing from the retwist but some say beauty is painful, this was no difference. A good thing about blogs is you can see the changes from before to the recent developments that the person has partaken in. ( If updated often enough)
In conclusion, I hope you all enjoy the coming hot weather and remember to smile despite the heat ( I am a Fall season lover to be honest… but I am prepared for the summer)
