Horizontalish in my room at hacienda villa, bushwick, brooklyn. the do-not-disturb sign on the door (typically on the outside, but i switched it to the inside for this photo shoot with @danielstevenkrieger ) reads "baking a cake." when i was 20 years old, i lived in a railroad apartment in greenpoint, brooklyn, with my former best friend. a railroad apartment is one continuous line of rooms from front to back, and in order to get to the bathroom and the kitchen, the person who lived in the front bedroom would either have to walk through the second bedroom, or go out into the hallway to get there. this occasionally made things... challenging. at first, i lived in the middle bedroom. and so i required a sign. and whenever i had a gentleman caller, i would signal that i was "baking a cake" (not to be confused, in any way, with having a bun in the oven. no buns. no. buns.) my room now is like a postage stamp. it's so small that i had to loft the bed in order to be able to turn around. a visitor once remarked that it was like a cabin on a ship. everything folds up (desk, chair), slides around (armchair, thai bodywork mat) and tucks away (the bookshelf in this photo lives behind the door when the door is open, as it usually is). my room is small but mighty. it has good juju. it is a happy place. thank you daniel, for documenting that. thus far, you are the only journalist i have trusted enough to photograph my private space.
Today is day 2/3 of the recovery days in this program. since today is a little cooler i chose to take a walk with the dog and well as with these 2 children. i love that even if i don get another workout in today i at least got this one and i am still on track. didnt miss a single workout this week. it is a nice break after leg def though! also, we get to find pretty things like these flowers on our walk!
