A Bushwick Brunch.

December 13, 2010

My Sundays have recently been falling into a bit of a pattern. The alcohol thats still in my system, wakes me up at the ungodly hour of 9 a.m. I go out to the living room to recollect my actions of Saturday, with my room mate James. It always calls for coffee.

My neighborhood doesn’t have too many sit down restaurant options. Its fine because I could eat at the only one we do have pretty much everyday if I had the choice.

Northeast Kingdom is dimly  lit and looks like a lodge in Vermont. The coffee is good. The food is decently priced. Their waiting area plays Looney Toons by a fireplace. The servers are always somehow familiar and comforting. And best of all, its pretty much right downstairs from me.

James and I go there almost every Sunday. Sometimes its just us staring at the bar in silence, and sometimes we take our out of town visitors to show them that although our neighborhood still looks pretty sketchy, we have the redeeming factor of a classy looking place like Northeast!

This Sunday was a bit of  treat since our other room mate, Naomi, was around. Along with an old friend of James’ from Texas. Speaking of treats, I find it interesting to add in the fact that Naomi had taken a couple of special cookies before we headed down for breakfast.

I decided to document it because Naomi is moving out shortly, and although all three of us are friends, we’ve never all gone out for a meal before.

So this was the first and last room mate brunch in this chapter of my life.

I would say that the past couple of days and all friends involved in them, have been pretty lovely.

I believe I’ve spoken myself into a hole on several occasions, through out this week. So I will simply be translating through pixels, for now.

alisonI just looked at the bad parenting in my last post, and felt the need to counteract it.

Photographer Jack Radcliffe started documenting his daughter Alison since day one. His photos of her start out very isolated and become more about documenting her surrounding, as she grows. You don’t have to know Alison to get a feel for what her life is like, and to know that she has a father who obviously loves her unconditionally.

I can’t wait till Ryan does this with LB and his other podling to be!
