YK’s 365 Release: Day 60

My birthdays in Brooklyn have been some of my favorite memories because they are always elaborate affairs, filled with people I love in my home, eating my food and enjoying each other.

One of my apartments in Brooklyn had a wonderful rooftop. The day after I moved in was my birthday, and not one to let a move deter me (since moving is such a regular occurrence with me), I went all out. It was an exceptionally spectacular summer day with a clear blue sky. I made my Korean BBQ, and we installed a tarp for shade over half of the roof. I had a kiddie pool, which we filled with water, hula hoops and we dragged all of my furniture upstairs. I even set up a full bar. It was completely perfect.

At some point for this party I needed electricity on the roof for the sound system, as well as water for the pool, so I had purchased a hose and a 50ft extension cord.

I got rid of the hose long ago but I just found the extension cord at the bottom of my tool box. Now when I find objects to release it’s like a treasure, because I have given so many items away I am finding it more and more arduous to find objects to release.

So on Day 60 of my 365 Release I am releasing an obscene length of extension cord, which I have kept because I forgot I was even carting it around. May the recipient do something just as awesome with it.


[I created the 365 Release Project to practice non-attachment, letting go and change by giving away 1 thing a day for 1 year. The background, vision and guidelines to the 365 RELEASE project are here. The running list of everything I have released is here.]

    girl, i love love love this idea/this mission/this form of new self discovery. what i actually love about you is that you have some of the most abstract epiphanies and then you share them which most people wouldn’t do. i suppose that’s the artist in you.
    i strive to be just as expressive SO PLEASE keep being an inspiration to us all.
