Today, February 20, 2017, marked 1 year clean and sober. It is both embarrassing and empowering to acknowledge the significance of this feat. For so long I believed, with great obstinacy, that I did not have a problem. Life was my problem. Drugs and alcohol were my solution. This thinking perpetuated a very deeply rooted malady; A languid anguish I've carried for decades but could not comprehend... much less shake. I had some very good times out there. I wouldn't change a thing. But the pain inevitably outweighed the pleasure and I knew, deep down, I needed to change. For many years, still, I tried in vain to "figure it out"... on my own. I could not. How truly humbling a revelation that has been. I'm no where near where I'd like to be, but I'm so much better than I was. Thank you to everyone who has carried me through. if you are going through it, you are not alone. If you'd like to know how I did it, please feel free to ask.
.king, thank you for your light, your love, honesty and your support | thank you for being brave enough to allow me into your heart | too often, women are left to feel like they're not appreciated | too often, women are left to question their relationship | and so i want to say, you are the love of my life and i love you so deeply | #rhsin
Bjarke Ingels Group plans 'The Eleventh', a pair of rotating towers in New York
Plans have officially been unveiled for a pair of ‘rotating’ towers in New York, conceived by Bjarke Ingels Group. Named ‘The Eleventh’, the development is situated between the High Line and Hudson River, with a design that seeks to ‘skew traditional skyscraper geometry’. The architecture pays homage to the city’s classic modernist structures and cultural institutions, yet features rotating forms that maximise external views from both structures.
BIG’s design includes stone and metal façades with punched window openings, a reference to the surrounding historic industrial buildings and the nearby meatpacking district. Climbing to a total height of 300 and 400 feet respectively (91 and 122 meters), the towers afford 360-degree views of the High Line, the Hudson River, and Downtown and Midtown Manhattan skylines.
Real estate development and investment company HFZ Capital Group, has also announced that Six Senses hotels resorts spas will open its flagship North American urban hotel as part of the scheme — which is currently under construction. As well as the five-star hotel and spa, located in the east tower, ‘The Eleventh’ will also offer private luxury homes above. Meanwhile, the west tower, the taller of the two, is entirely dedicated to condominium residences. Friends of the High Line is collaborating with HFZ on a public open-air pedestrian promenade that will run adjacent to the elevated park.
