Waiting for his wash.

I am washing my shoes. He is drying his clothes. We are both waiting.

Back to Brooklyn, American Overload on the J Train

A man carries more cultural signifiers on his body than I can process this morning.

I've asserted my way on to a cramped and chaotic J Train in Brooklyn, heading from Bed-Stuy to the corporate office.

Passing by A Flophouse in Bushwick

I try to walk a few blocks out of my known territory every other day to add what was yesterday's frontier to tomorrow's familiar spaces. I want to get a sense of place relative to where I'm living now. I want to learn where I can work, where the viable coffices are. I need to learn where I can buy food, like real groceries and not bodega meals. I was wandering south-easternly down Broadway when I saw Neptune Hotel.
