So I’m a bit late with the release of this episode. I apologize for that. Milton and I had a few more things to get done before I could feel 100% comfortable about releasing this first part to the public. This is a very personal episode for me and there are a lot of reasons for that.
A few words on the heart: That bandaged heart has defined me for a long time. It means so much to me because it shows me every day that although I am destructible, I am resilient and I will fight. It also helped me a lot to read the older posts that I wrote, in an attempt to cleanse myself of the anguish I felt. Seeing who I have become in that short span of time makes me really proud of who I am and eager to see who I will be.
Le Chiffre:That is a side to me that seldom gets seen. Methodical, quiet, calm, cerebral, I really enjoyed the character in the Bond movie and I saw a lot of myself in him. I plan to use the name in a good light though, no ill-intent. Hopefully, with time, my wardrobe will mirror his. That would be awesome.
I think I can easily say that this will probably be the most personal I will ever get for this blog, but I feel really good about being able to share this stuff. And the jacket…haha, that jacket is incredible. I have to thank Mike Sherman and Jack Greer at the Nike Bowery studio for doing an amazing job at bringing my ideas to life on a beautiful canvas.
Some folks have been telling me that I am so lucky to be doing what I have been doing in 2012 but to be honest, I am just doing what I want to do, there is no luck involved. Life doesn’t have to be a predetermined affair, the journey is everything to me and I am enjoying all of it. Like I mentioned earlier, this will be the last episode for a little while but there is still so much to come. I really hope that you like it. Power up 🙂
