Cross the street



When we were in New York last year visiting the lovely Amander, we would meet up with her at the different places she was working around the city. I was truly inspired by my time with Amander, seeing her day to day and meeting her friends/people she works with. I'm incredibly proud of her for going after what she's wanted to do, even when it's a struggle.

Our second night there, we met up with her at Juilliard where she was working on the costumes she designed for a ballet. As we were leaving, Stephen stopped to light his cigarette and Amander looked across the way at Lincoln Center.

"Everyone wants to go from here," she said, pointing at Julliard, "to there."

She stared back across the street at Lincoln Center.

We started walking, Stephen finally looking up from lighting his cigarette.

"Just cross the street," he said, and smiled.

Amander and I looked at him and started laughing. You know what? Yeah, sometimes it is that simple - sometimes you have to look at what you want to do and who you want to be like it's just that simple!

Just cross the street - just do your thing.
