I did this shoot a while ago, but took some time to post it. With everything going on in the world, it just didn't feel like the right timing. I want to say it loud and proud here: I'm a Jewish American, and I feel my safety is at risk. If you are Jewish, Black, Gay, Trans, or what have you, I want to let you know I'm here for you. I'm virtually here for you, and physically I will do my damn best to be there for you. I went to the march Saturday to protest the "free speech" rally and it was a beautiful turnout. I am so lucky to be living in Boston, I truly am. I couldn't sit on my couch while our grandparents/great grandparents fought in a war, who literally fought Nazis: I had to do something. I think it's important to march and physically be there, for those who can't. It's important to say "Look I'm here, not just for myself, but for you." We have a cancer in America right now and it's spreading, it's time to standup and fight it, "sheet caking" is not an option.
I know my blog never takes a serious route, and you may even come here to escape reality (sorry to bring you back to it) but I want to let you know, as a people we need to stick together, even more so now. If you need anything, write me a comment, send me a facebook message, anything, I'll respond. The main thing you need to know is, you're not alone.
Now that I got that out of my system.... barely.... "I'll be there for you" is a song I love to annoyingly clap to, but it's a saying I'm sticking by to right now. I've been watching A LOT of Friends recently, because it's this utopian world in NYC, where nothing bad happens, even the smelly cats are cute, and everyone gets along. Also, from my last post, I'm clearly stuck in the '90s, just give me Buffy and Friends all day, every day. This is my small form of escapism.
^ my walk ons - fun fact, people always try to photobomb my shoots. But I'm more than willing to take a photo with you - anything to feel like Mickey Mouse at Disney.
