A random face, a human story

I always wonder about the story behind a face in the crowd. We pass so many every day and every once in a while one of them catches me and makes me want to know its story. This one is amazing to me, the careful braids, the painted eyebrows, the outlined lips, the sleepy eyes, the bright shirt, the swirly earrings,… she stood out in the crowd. It never fails to amaze me that there are about 6.7 billion people alive on this planet and each single one of them has a different face, different life, different mind, different soul, different spirit and a different set of fingerprints. Life is a genius puzzle begging to be investigated…

Making a buck or a 100

It is genius, put on a random character costume, make a sign that says tips, hit the touristy streets of NYC and you are guaranteed to make a little fortune 🙂

“Music Inn” New York City

A quirky gem of a store on W4th street in the village. This store is around the corner from where I used to live on Jones Street. I remember 10 years ago you had to pay a dollar or 2 to even get in to the store. A very cool old man owns and runs the store which is packed full of musical instruments, antiques and odd objects from around the world. I went back there with a very dear friend and had a trip into an odd world of music, history, dust, strange feelings for about a half hour, during which we were taken through grungy corridors to look at a packed basement room filled with dusty world treasures and oddities.
