{DIALOGUE WITH B WHILE WALKING DOWN 6TH AVE}

Honey, you have to be courageous. To be fierce, it takes balls. It takes and individual. It takes challenging yourself. We are the individuals of this city. We make it all happen, honey. We are the creators of this place. We are the dreamers of the dream.

I was thinking about this the other day. This is so funny that we bump into each other to have this conversation.


Honey, you're open to it. When you keep yourself open to it everything lines up and you meet the people you are meant to meet.


Is simplicity the new complexity?


That’s for sure honey. Here’s a prime example. {points to a man in the window who is eating a very large steak and eggs dinner at midnight in a greasy diner.} That man over there will never know what it is like to be an individual. My guess would be that he does the same thing every single night. Eats and eats and eats. Reads that newspaper filled with the most useless stories of tragedy making his life all that more tragic. The same articles of how fat you're getting, how bald you're getting, how poor you're getting. Yet, he’s still here every night doing the same thing.


And I notice this happening everywhere.


Most people don’t want to break out of the shell, it's too scary. There is too much investment in routine.


Well, look at what he is reading and what everyone else is reading. It’s a wonder why. How can we ever see anything change if we don’t do anything differently.


Honey, that’s what this life is all about. Asking how we can. How can we live the beautiful life? Ask yourself that.


How can we live the beautiful life?
