I was raging hard this morning.  I got jacked up; I mean, seriously juiced.

That’s right — I went on an all-morning juice crawl through the streets of New York.  Major props to the event coordinator, Anna, who was hosting and couldn’t have been more pleasant and sweet.

Today is Earth Day, and arguably the nicest day of 2015 thus far, so I was really glad to make a semi-spontaneous decision to do something healthy and fun and that involved going outdoors.

Where 4 years ago this time I would never have bothered to wake up early on a Saturday (even to drink)…I would have quickly abandoned all pretense and made my way to either the beer store or the bar stool, depending on who I was peer-pressuring to daydrink with me during the final weeks of senior year in Geneseo.

I don’t know if I even had thoughts or goals for my mid-20’s at that point in my life, but I for damn sure wouldn’t have thought my featured Saturdays would start before noon with a 30-minute cross training session on the sales floor in Urban Outfitters’ Herald Square locale and be followed by a couple hours of sampling organic juice combinations at various shops & stops throughout the city.

Also occurring on this date, internationally, is Record Store Day.  I popped into a vinyl dispensary on my way home this afternoon and even though I’m no collector (yet), it was strangely comforting to be among all the bins of pressed wax — and more importantly, the people who love them.  I overheard snippets of conversation between two obviously veteran DJs as we were browsing ’70s R&B sleeves…I just love people, who love music.

Now I get to recount my day with the balcony door wide open, spring in full effect, and a funky mix in the living room.
Life is aight.
