Sometimes it rains for three days straight and you’re trapped inside the villa when all you wanna do is adventure. So we woke up before the crack of dawn to drive 2 hours north to arrive at this waterfall with not another soul in sight. And then the sun just so happened to shine perfectly on this rock and I just so happened to have a pretty friend willing to climb up to the top of it which ended up being probably my favorite photo I’ve ever taken in my life. Been sending it all day every day the past few days all over this island. Rain or shine. Just a few days left, and I’m gonna soak in every last minute of it✨
Soooo, I definitely recognize zodiac signs, but I don’t whole heartedly believe in them. Like, yeah they are general with a little specificity to each one (Cancer, caring, emotional, enjoys being by their self) and I couldn’t be wrong about being a Cancer! I’ve noticed I’ve become increasingly indulgent in myself and wanting to do just about everything by myself when I could invite people to do it with me. I just enjoy exploring by myself and being in my own head space. This picture was taken in New York when I was going to meet up with my friends, but decided to wonder and get a little lost along the way. The only thing I’m really scared about is becoming too self-indulgent. I definitely don’t need anyone to have fun, but having your friends sure does help ❤️ #selfreflection
From a distance I saw a man laying on the sidewalk, whenever people walked by, he hopelessly held up a cup, asking for spare change. He kept his head down, as if he was already expecting that no one would pay attention to him. When I walked up to him, he raised his cup towards me, but didn’t look at me. I saw there were just a few nickels and pennies in his cup. “Would you like something to eat?” I asked him. He then looked at me and said “I could really go for a pizza.” So I walked over to a pizza joint close by. As the pizza was being prepared, I had a great conversation with the nice Armenian owner. When the pizza was ready, I walked back over to the man on the sidewalk and posted up next to him.
I learned that he suffers from severe anxiety disorder, and that he’s been homeless for a long time. Sometimes it was difficult to follow what he was saying, but I tried my best to listen and understand him. He said to me “It gets really lonely out here, so it’s nice to have someone to talk to.” Then the Armenian owner was taking the trash out and saw me sitting with the man, as he ate the pizza. He didn’t say anything, but gave me a warm smile of acknowledgement. It’s the little things, man. // For Duane.
