On a Colonial Snow Day

even NYC’s finest have to deal with the snow. putting a smile on a pedestrian’s face.

regardless, this whole snow thing is becoming a routine. its snows every day…
it is essential to have a pair of boots.
the main idea behind staying away from snow misery is avoiding wetsock.
wetsock is what happens when you underestimate how deep a slush puddle is.
once you’ve stepped…..its only a matter of time before you feel the cold, brown slush seep into your shoe….and slowly, overcoming your sock…rendering your foot….miserable.
gotta watch out for this:

it appears to be wetstreet but is actually several inches deep…and cold.

but snowlife is not completely miserable. its actually quite beautiful.
especially within 24 hours of the storm. perfect time to be cozy…or write graffiti.
the next morning looks something like this:






another way to avoid misery, is to get off facebook, and explore!
i mean seriously…how much longer are you going to stare at this:

the most magical person on earth isn’t going to appear with a green dot next to him or her anytime soon. and you wont miss your groundbreaking FB chats either.

things just look better in the snow. it has to do with the light. and all the white.
and trying to catch the sun when its just right:

i had the opportunity to work in a colonial old new york building in the west village.
up until this point, i referred to anything not in my lifetime as colonial.
of course, this is not correct. and it took something like this to make me truly understand:

i mean this building was built in 1845! and its still strong and functioning. now a part of New York City’s past and present.
if i recall correctly, i was in the middle of an intense doodle, or a class nap the last time i learned about shit from the 1840s…
in order to give a closer look into what the curated hallways of a building like this is like:





along with many more wonderfully framed pieces of art dating wayyyyy back.
you know. colonial stuff.

i guess the point is: get a pair of boots. and get out there…
and for the parting shot:
