_wanderkid this was the moment when i expressed how appreciative i was of @questlove's mindfulness of community & giving back. he likened the idea of success to the movie, up.

"imagine you're holding 10,000 helium balloons and you're starting to levitate? what's your first response in 30 seconds?", he asked. "see, i'm afraid of heights so I would freak out." "that's the thing. most people are more concerned about how they're gonna get down or if they're gonna fall instead of just enjoying the adventure..."

mannn, i can't even tell you how simple yet profound this was to me. this is a mentality that I've been striving to live by and it means so much more when it's affirmed by someone who has found so much success and is still so gracious & humble. thank you, @questlove for being you.

_wanderkid was feeling a bit off yday morning, but remembered that I would later be sitting in on a conversation between @anthonybourdain & @questlove about his new book, somethingtofoodabout.

topics included jiro dreams of sushi, the success of the cronut, and those incredibly delicious red lobster cheddar bay biscuits.

there was a lot of light-hearted banter, but above all, i was reminded that this is freakin' questlove. this is someone who already has an immensely full plate (between the roots, fallon, & DJ gigs alone, i'm sure his schedule is nonstop) and yet, he still finds time to pursue more of his passions & in this case, it's food.

the idea of relating music to food and trying to understand the creative process behind food is something that has always intrigued me. fun fact, I actually tried to start a blog years ago that would offer music pairings w recipes, but because blogs are a lot of fucking work, my idea never came to fruition. but don't get me wrong, it's def something I would love to try my hand at again some time soon.

anyway, I ended up having the chance to exchange a few words w the man himself & I must say that I'm truly humbled by his drive, passion, and tenacity. he reminded me that we shouldn't be afraid to fall and it was the perfect remedy for my terrible case of the mondays.

_wanderkid hi friends! as some of you know, I love to travel & document my experiences to share w you all.

i've recently started a blog (#thecuspofpower) which will serve partially as a platform to narrate my adventures in depth. However, I've also decided to create a section on here that will serve as my visual travel timeline so you can all get a quick taste of where i've been and where you might like to visit!

all you have to do is go to my ig profile & click on that itty bitty button to see my tagged photos. under there you'll see nothing but my travels so you don't have to scroll through my main feed in search of something specific.

so if any of you want to check out where I've traveled or are interested in any recommendations when visiting a place for the first time, please feel free to use this as your starting point!

this is only the beginning & believe me, there will be many more exciting journeys for this lil wanderkid to share! 📸🛩

_wanderkid reposting this because it'll ease my design ocd and complete this triptych, BUT... tonight I roller skated to prince and I felt such an intense rush of happiness. from struggling to get my bearings to finally being able to coast, groove, and bounce to little red corvette & erotic city, tonight was pure bliss. 5d

in an effort to challenge myself more, i decided to run a 5k for my bday. as someone who is NOT a runner at all, this was a huge accomplishment for me & to top things off, my run ended very appropriately to trophies.
