NEW YORK, NY - The remains of tower number 2 of the World Trade Center lie behind an office at one Liberty Plaza at first light on September 12, 2001. (Photo by Jonathan Torgovnik/Reportage by Getty images).
This was a place I knew. I have memories at the World Trade Centers. I’ve been couped up in an office all day. Telling everyone I talked to what the date was. I felt a certain way every time I had to say it. September 11th. The date that changed a nation. We collectively experienced this event together. For a moment, we as Americans, were all in one accord. I love this country. I love this life. I am always looking forward to living it more. Find triumph in tragedy.

Keeping up is one thing. But I live my days setting trends. I see what’s going on and make my own interpretations. I’m not going to front, I see elements I like, I use then and make them my own. Isn’t that life? I believe in respecting a standard, but I’m pushing that bar up.
Do people still write on tumblr?
Here’s my shot at it. I feel like I can say a lot more here than on my IG or Facebook, or whatever app or social tool there is. Something about tumblr feels so nostalgic. It seems familiar. Like me and tumblr go back to second grade and grew up together but then grew up and apart, but then we run into each other 7 years later and it’s like day 1…. In a good way, not a weird and awkward actual first time meeting someone. Because that is seldom smooth. At least for me.
