Part 2

Wearing all white (leather) in the summer

Truthfully, I liked the majority of the photos that my coworker took for me that one time I ventured to Harlem for brunch. 

But I don’t have anything to say worthy of a blog post to go with them.

Well, that’s not true. There is a lot to say, but I’m not sure how or why I would say anything just yet.

I also need to be careful what I give life to with my words write, er right–I keep doing that–now.

I know writers write but it’s hard when you don’t know what to say. But just know, this isn’t, like, the awkward silence that happens on jammed train cars and in cabs late at night.

This is a comfortable silence between friends. While we wait for the check after dinner. Or enjoy Pinkberry by the East River. The way my friends and I used to pile into a twin-sized bed for a nap or to watch ATL in college.

Neither of us is blaming the other for the quiet. We think it’s nice to just be for a moment.

This is the equivalent of digitally just being. When was the last time you just sat? In the quiet? Listening for God?

    I live for quiet moments, it’s how I keep my sanity and recharge my batteries. Usually I get my quiet moments late night or really early in the morning. That’s my alone time with God

      Hey Rian! I like that you called it your alone time with God. Nice way to think of it.

    Channing can I just say that I’m so in love with your hair. I love your style too of course…lol. I know you mentioned you were natural but get blow outs by “Dry Bar.” How is your hair when you go there beforehand? Like do you go to them with your hair in a bun and they blow it out? I’m so tired of twisting/braiding my own hair. Also what Blow Bar and stylist do your recommend in NYC? I’m desperate for change and your hair is just always FLY!

      Hey Khadijah! Thank you, but it’s SO dirty in this post. When I go to DryBar, it’s either like it is above or in a bun, whatever. They wash it, I always request 2 or 3 shampoos, conditioner it, and then I ask that they detangle my hair at the bowl. I like to go to Natasha at the DryBar Murray Hill location. She’s awesome and always gets my roots to lay like I have a relaxer. Let me know how you like it!

    Hmmmm. It’s been a while, but I like to have my time with God first thing in the morning and before bed.
