Feels something like summertime…

Feels something like summertime
Top down ain’t nothing but time
Radio’s on and you’re by my side
Feels something like summertime….

Where do I begin? I truly haven’t updated here in a long while and I sincerely apologize for this discrepancy. I’ve been a bad bad blogger…

It’s summertime now, and it sure as heck feels like it in this here city, cats. How was yesterday’s weather you ask? It was a brutal 93 degrees and it might have felt like 103 as I wandered over to Soy & Sake for lunch.

Ae you inquiring about where have I been?

These days life goes like this
Wake up, check that off of some list
Gotta be a little something more than this
at the bottom of my coffee cup
I keep a postcard in the back of my mind
White sand, sunshine
And you’re shining like a brand new dime
That’s keeping me from giving up
Thinking like I had enough

Firstly: I won Prom Queen. That’s right, cats. Veggie Prom Queen of 2012. It was a fun night that was full of laughter, dancing and friends. David Karopkin, my fellow Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary volunteer won for Prom King and we had our “dance” to Boyz 11 Men. Yes, this may have been a childhood dream to be spun around to “Bended Knee” but at 30,  it was just entertaining. Thanks to David who actually got on his knee and fulfilled that childhood dream of a man singing that song to me, on his knees.

Next weekend was the Veggie Pride Parade in which I was asked to walk in the front of the parade holding the banner.  Jacquelyn, my darling roommate spoke me into dressing up for this event even after my dismissive thoughts of just wearing my favorite school girl vintage skirt and a Vaute Couture tank. This year the sun was shining down on us and everyone was in good cheer for being Veg. After the parade, a few of us wandered over to Lula’s where I had arranged with my sissy, Diana and Kneel and Alicia to meet us there. We ended up hanging out there, taking over the front of the shop and the bench for several hours before requesting that we walk over to Moo Shoe’s.

The next morning was Memorial Day and I had plans to meet at Champ’s in Williamsburg for brunch. Kneel ended up being our resident “adviser, a great “job” for him as part of a all-female table. 😉

After brunch, I mentioned that it’s not Memorial Day until I had one drink so Michelle, Kristy, Elizabeth and I found a bar nearby and had some delicious chilled cocktails.

On Monday, I returned to my routine and snapped right back into reality.I realized I had to get past certain “stunters” and let go…of people, places and things.

Several other events have occurred: Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary Rooftop Party in which I volunteered and sold raffle tickets. Derek Goodwin, a good friend of mine fire danced as we all watched not wanting to even blink just out of pure enjoyment. There was food from VSpot, Blossom Du Jour, Blossom & a few other local vegan eateries and caterers.

Then came  the first annual “The Seed: A Vegan Experience”, which was located at 82 Mercer street and showcased everything from inspiring speakers to tasty vegan food to vegan fashion.My friend Gabe, gave my mother an extra ticket and we went happily together on Saturday and I watched in pure joy as she excitedly asked questions about veganism and wanted to learn and went from table to table trying new vegan foods and took delight in the day. On Sunday, I modeled for Melisser  as she did my cruelty-free makeup with a bold red lip.

I have been modeling a lot recently once again, as I take pure pleasure in it (that’s not obvious, is it!?). I am lucky enough to know plenty of talented photographers who ask me to take part in their photo projects. Always with a vintage style: I oblige.

I have missed updating this blog and promise to return to updating it frequently.

Now check out some pictures! xo…

Teenage Mary said to Uncle Dave
I sold my soul, must be saved
Gonna take a walk down Union Square

AH, time flies when you look in the mirror and your reflection has changed.

This was taken during some “Rock n Roll” photo shoot.

3.30.12: Pictures of you….

I’ve been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they’re real
I’ve been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel…..

Remembering
You standing quiet in the rain
As I ran to your heart to be near
And we kissed as the sky fell in
Holding you close
How I always held close in your fear…..

Tuesday March 27th: Let Them Talk TV interview LIVE with Paul DeRienzo &

Something new Fashion Event; Modeling:

Remembering
You running soft through the night
You were bigger and brighter and wider than snow
And screamed at the make-believe
Screamed at the sky
And you finally found all your courage
To let it all go….

Let them Talk TV Station interview with Paul on PETA and Veganism:

If only I’d thought of the right words
I could have held on to your heart
If only I’d thought of the right words
I wouldn’t be breaking apart
All my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you
But I never hold on to your heart
Looking so long for the words to be true
But always just breaking apart
My pictures of you

As you can probably see from all these photos: I have had a hectic past two weeks. A lot of events are coming up at The Cafe that I am on the board of and I am focusing on that, my birthday party on April 13th (though really April 12th!) and this weekend I will be filming a documentary with my friend Diana, a health coach as well as feeding homeless on Long Island on Sunday.

Next weekend I will be heading up to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary for my annual birthday visit! and a breath of fresh air.

I will and promise to catch up soon and keep in touch.
