I live in Brooklyn, New York and Washington, DC. Born in Washington, DC Brooklyn became my chosen home after graduate school and I stayed for almost two decades. Now I live 90% of the year in Washington, DC, in a conscious retreat from New York that has allowed for an unexpected creative freedom. On a recent week long visit to the city I was able to indulge in what I call 'urban meditation'- sitting in a largely populated area, not listening to music of any kind, alone just watching. On this day I found a wonderful proscenium in which to frame my watching.
