So I have been living out of a suitcase or 2 for 1 year.
It has been quite an accumulation of new experiences that would no doubt take more than a day or 2 to tell.
So instead of doing that, I am going to try to let pictures do much of the talking. I can only begin to begin to say thank you to the people and places that have been so generous with their time, spaces, ideas and feelings.
This year has been really transformative: A linear map would beÂ 6 months in Mexico City (with 2 weekend trips to New York for Alex and Jessica’s wedding), to 1 week in Italy, 1 week in France, 5 days in Germany,Â 1 more week in Italy, then 2 weeks on the west coast of the US, back to Mexico for 2 weeks, then to New York for 2 1/2 months subletting while shooting and mixing the upcoming Listening Lab (more on that in a bit), to 2 1/2 months in Rio, SÃ£o Paulo and Belo Horizonte Brazil. But it has not felt linear, probably due to constant flow of friends visiting, chance encounters and the small overlapping worlds within which I seem to travel.
All in all, it has been an amazing time, and I feel lucky to have been able to have had such a wonderful year of travel. As this is a blog, I can only hope that the few readers I do have are aware of how thankful I am that we were able to spend time together over this last year. It has been a lot of hellos and goodbyes (for now). In a strange way, it seems like a year of new beginnings…
Below are some photo sets selected from the many now on my flickr
It has been a wonderful year, and as I finish writing this from Rio de Janeiro, I am both happy and a bit nostalgic. Happy to have met so many wonderful people, and sad that I must leave this amazing city. But, as always (it has been 16 years back and forth!), I will return…Meanwhile, it is back to BKLYN at least for now.
