My neighborhood is RICH!

Chances are, if you’re reading this, then you already KNOW where I live: ONLINE, most of the time. Even when I’m out and about I’m usually still connected, in more ways than one. It’s my neighborhood. It’s the people I familiarize with and the things that we do therein, everyday. It’s great.

I’m rarely bored in my neighborhood and while all of us live somewhere with some level of awesomeness, I’m sure — I wanted to share a piece of my neighborhood with you this morning. You know I’m an artsy girl, so let’s start this week out in the ARTS DISTRICT:

I may reside in Arizona, but I find that New York has the most awesome museums. I haven’t travelled the world over, but even in the key places that I have hit, all that I have mingled with hail NY as an arts mecca.

Exhibits open and exhibits close –
todays showcases go blow-for-blow.

The first one opened several years ago and has since closed,
But in my neighborhood — it always has open doe’s [doors]:

Then there’s that awesome exhibit that opened last month –
the Metropolitain Museum hosted an artistic slam dunk.

It was the CUBISM exhibit – crafted in sweat, love and no whim.
The work of Braque, Gris, Picasso and Leger; the existence bears no dim:

In my neighborhood, (that is most limitless), I can go anywhere I want to.
I wake up early, rarely in a hurry and do what I want to do.

4am is my preferred time to get up and roam the “www” streets.
Regardless the hour, there’s a strong social power – there’s no telling who I might meet.

My neighborhood is rich. If it’s conversation that you’re seeking,
I’ve more than a few friends who are dimensionally blog speaking:

Neither of my neighobrs are on a ‘news headline’ roll,
most are on beauty, improvement and mundane control.

My neighborhood is rich and our outlook is strong.
Stop and smell the roses – don’t ‘do rut‘ too long.

This is the first Monday of 2015, I’m up and happy about it.
My neigborhood is rich … I’m a literary stitch
It would be weird if I didn’t type it or shout it.

Rise and shine babies. There’s so much to do!
I’m Qui
Welcome to 2015 – There’s new opportunity for you!

…in my neighborhood.
and it’s all to-the-good.

When visiting NY

Qui Met Museum 2014And so I decided to get the unlimited ride metro card and take the bus, to the Metropolitan Museum. Boy, am I glad I did. I had a blast. The CUBISM Exhibit is on display and was captivating. I stood for hours in a parallel trance enjoying the work of Gris, Braque, Picasso and Leger. I also dropped in on The ARTS of AFRICA, OCEANA AND THE AMERICAS – Good stuff. I also took a walk down Madison Avenue and did some window shopping. I thought about going in, and then I thought about what my bank balance would look like when I return home, and so, I kept on walking.

The weather? Well, it isn’t “sunny and warm Arizona weather,” but it has been beautiful and sunny for the most part of my trip and always ranging between 39-46 degrees and the air is thick with COOL. No, it’s COLD. Cool is not the word, however, it’s really an easy cold if you’re well insulated and I have been. It’s certainly not southern weather, but its definitely the type of Fall you can fall for.

Before I close, let me mention how affordable the metro card is compared to calling a cab or a car! Amazing! Prior to this trip, I was riding high and mighty in private cars and taxi cabs and then returning home low on funds. Ha! That will not be the case this time. I’m on the train baby and the entertainment therein, can not be beat. I am happy today! How about you? decorative-line-divider1

When was the last time you visited New York? Well baby, that’s too long.
This place is amazing. So diverse, so strong.

I don’t visit as often as I’d really like,
though whenever I do, I birth the most awesome writes.

And so I am here today, and creativity is all around me.
My mind and heart, wide open – the beauty of Fall has found me!

I am happy! Happy! Happy! I couldn’t help but write — I am a writer,
I’m Qui
Today is on point, I’m rocking this joint, and tomorrow’s going to be even tighter.
