Not sure what’s better, that I found a guy that will always hold my hand, or getting a picture on the Brooklyn bridge with no people in it 🤷♀️

Every since I was little, I dreamed of visiting New York. I was obsessed with the place. Absolutely infatuated. I hung photos on my wall of the Empire State Building, spent hours researching the city, I even recall going to the lengths of looking around 5th Avenue using google street view. When my dad returned from the Big Apple bearing an I heart NY t-shirt and a Yankees cap for me, I felt like I had won the lottery. •
Of course, no destination is ever quite the same as you imagine it to be. It will always look and feel different to what your imagination conjures up. When fantasising about NYC when I was younger, I never gave thought to the incessant traffic. Or the stench of the subway. Or the heartbreaking poverty and homelessness issues that plague the city. No city is idyllic. No destination is flawless. Every place in the world has its positives and negatives, elements that you’ll love and elements you‘ll loathe.
New York may not be the same city I fantasised about all those years ago. But now, it’s even better, because it’s no longer just a fantasy. It’s a busy, beautiful, gritty, grand reality. Filled with elements I love and elements I loathe. It’s moments like this one- basking in cold sunlight on the Brooklyn Bridge, angry cyclists whirling past almost knocking us pedestrians to the ground- that I wouldn’t want it be any other way. •
I‘ve finally learnt not to have any expectations or pre-conceived notions before and even whilst travelling. Now, I just let myself experience a place for all its flourishes and all its flaws. The best part about doing it this way? No destination can ever disappoint.

📦 Thank you Nick for teaching us adults more about cardboard than we never knew that we never knew 📦 #CloudscapesEventSeries
Thanks to all who came out to our Adult/PG-13 workshop :: Crumpled Stuff // Papier-mâché w/ artist Nick DeMarco @objet_demarco ... It was everything Nick promised!!
In this workshop, attendees will be shown techniques to quickly and cheaply build physical sculptures, costumes, or domestic objects using papier-mâché, recycled plastic, and cardboard. You are encouraged to bring some of your own recycled paper grocery bags, used plastic bottles or other objects, recycled cardboard, or anything else that can be easily cut or stapled. Experimentation with the techniques is encouraged, but Nick will be walking through the steps to make a simple #papiermache vessel or vase. .
