While awaiting my (the) plane’s arrival at JFK yesterday, a serious seeming yet hip/trendy woman clad in circular Oliver Peoples sat down next to me…my sister… A precious gentleman (I deduced his preciousness based on his interactions with his travel buddy) respectfully gestured to my trendy/serious neighbor. They were college classmates. While I didn’t engage even the slightest in their conversation, Trendy Serious was telling her college friend about her kid’s whereabouts – “my son is a DJ…he’s on a plane every day to play in different places.”* Turns out her son is RL Grime/Clockwork (aka. Henry Steinway)…”depending on his mood.”* Trappy lil’ fella, that Henry. I laughed. Meeting (eavesdropping counts) anyone’s mom whether of a friend or RL Gimes is just the best.
Float to these.
