Friday 20 April 2012: Midtown Express
There are many ways to get around Manhattan. Taxi, subway, sedan, scooter, limo, rickshaw, bus, on foot and, of course, the way Isaiah gets around.
A great board with amazing trucks and radical wheels which have real street cred. If I were young, I would travel through the City just like this.
Isaiah is one class act. He glows with glamorous looks and energy, is extremely personable and has a warmth which defies the persona of midtown. I spoke with him briefly but wanted to ask of him endless questions. Yet, again, I was in a rush to get to a meeting so I felt quite cheated and short on time to learn more about his life. As I walked towards my meeting, I could not help but think of the contrast of our lives. He was a free spirit and I a slave of time. I so wanted to switch positions.
I hope to get home and have time to catch up on your journals. Thank you for you kind views and comments despite my absence,
