This past weekend, I visited New York’s Museum of Modern Art & fell in love in the photography gallery. I always fall in love in their portrait gallery so this is really no new news! What made me fall during my most recent visit was Carrie Mae Weems’ “From Here I SawPeep The Rest!
One of my all time favorite songs performed by Nina Simone is "Lilac Wine." The song is as simple and sweet as the blooms of a lilac tree itself. When I left my 9-5 today I noticed that that lilac tree was blooming & I instantly heard Nina crooning in my head. This is allPeep The Rest!
