BLUE IN QUEENS

I don't know what it is about the color blue, but it's my favorite color this season other than the usual neutrals. I've been reading Maggie Nelson's beautiful book of poetry Bluets, and that may be partially why I keep on thinking an unnecessary, almost inane, amount about the color, but I've come to the consensus that I don't care if over half the population's favorite color is blue, because I love it, too. She writes on the color blue as a favorite color: "It is tempting to derive some kind of maturity narrative here: eventually we sober up and grow out of our rash love of intensity (i.e. red); eventually we learn to love more subtle things with more subtlety, etc., etc. But my love for blue has never felt to me like a maturing... for the fact is that one can maintain a chromophilic recklessness well into adulthood."

CHAMELEON IN CENTRAL PARK

It's funny that a lot of my time here in New York thus far has consisted of some major park-hopping, and the juxtaposition of natural spaces within the city. I think that having left a lot of greenery in California, I've just been drawn to these little pockets of green. I am slightly obsessed with Prospect Park (despite the fact that it is a ways away from me) and the Hudson River Park/Pier 40 (which is, at the moment, within walking/running distance). What I love about the two aforementioned parks is that you don't feel like you are in New York necessarily and there are definitely less tourists than in Central Park. Thankfully, Central Park on the Upper West is less touristy as well (the place in the pictures), and has enough room for frolicking. The sun has been setting so late, and I've really been able to spend time until late evening inside of various parks.

NEW YORK THROUGH INSTAGRAM

As many of you may know, I am spending the entire summer in New York. These past two-and-a-half weeks have quite frighteningly flown by, and I'm most definitely afraid of not cherishing my time here as well as I can. Here are a few snippets of the enigmatic city through my phone that partially capture what I've been up to for the time being. Obviously, there has been a lot of food and coffee consumed. Let me know if any of you would like a guide of my favorites in the city at the end of my stay! Follow me on Instagram @highstitchedvoice if you want to keep up with a more timely account of my travels.
