Sleep or Never

New York City maybe the city that never sleeps...but we NEED our sleep. A trek into the city can be an exhausting one. Consider last night. The festival has begun and it seems the performances are going well. Leilani and Marie-Reine went to see Regie Cabico and Aileen Cho's show. They had a great time at LaMaMa with other festival participants like D'Lo and Kristina Wong rooting and supporting each other. There is a strong sense of camaraderie amongst the participants because it's important and we need each other. We need each other as audience, we need each other as colleagues and we need each other to better ourselves. There is so much activity as part of the festival and New York City itself that time is valuable. Choices can be difficult to make depending upon location, time frame and distance. Going from one place to another takes a lot of walking. So by the time you are subway setting to one place you exhaust yourself. When you get home...sleep is important. So sleep in when you can.

I went to the Asian American Legal Defense Fund event around Chelsea. There were many NYC professionals in attendance numbering close to 500 or so. I did my best to promote Refugee Nation. Most who I spoke too seem interested and I hope they come. It was great to connect with friends I had made at a BBQ earlier in the week. They were instrumental in helping me spread the word and give out postcards. I also met new friends who in the future could help us out. Hsindy from Boston. We'll definitely connect with you when we arrive in Boston during the fall. Progress takes time.
