Acne Paper, Beyond The Esoteric
This is how I’m spending my afternoon: reading Acne Paper’s 14th issue. This issue focuses on the undeniable force that is Manhattan. As every French person I cross these days dreams about leaving our Paris behind I now find myself a bit taken by all the hoopla. I am now engrossed at how citizens the world over dream about, achieve success and even have their hopes shattered in the belly of the beast that is New York on a daily basis and keep coming back for more. I love visiting New York but not living there. I love this city from a distance, am proud of her pulsating streets, the realness of the young and old, the boldness of everyone and everything.
I tell my French students that if you’re not ready to do battle and be grateful to be a soldier in the battle to live and work New York, don’t even bother thinking about living there. It’s refined, funky, gritty, magical, brutal and beautiful.
Ok, time to read.
