I can’t believe Stephanie Cordato Patrick accidentally ended up at a sketchy Halloween rave party in an abandoned warehouse without a floor.

I am incredibly interested in how she ended up there, especially considering she said you had to pay some guy on a street corner for a map.

Okay but since Percy lives in New York, I can he and Annabeth taking a lot of trips into New York City, and whenever they go into the city Percy forces them into the M&M store so he can get all the different blue M&Ms, and Annabeth secretly thinks its adorable.

“I spent a great deal of my life being ignored. I was always very happy that way. Being ignored is a great privilege. That is how I think I learned to see what others do not see and to react to situations differently. I simply looked at the world, not really prepared for anything.”  Saul Leiter

Nick Dupree Fought To Live 'Like Anyone Else'
The activist campaigned to change rules, so that people with disabilities could get nursing care and other support at home past the age of 21, and get married without losing Medicaid benefits.

Disability Rights Activist Nick Dupree Fought Alabama For Continued Care : Shots - Health News : NPR - Dupree had a severe neuromuscular disease and was living in Mobile, Ala. He was in a wheelchair and depended on a respirator to breathe. The state paid for nurses to come into his home — even take him to college classes. But that care was about to end the day he turned 21. He faced going to a nursing home, where he feared he would die.

Every state has a program that pays for care for severely disabled children to live at home, but not every state continues that care into adulthood. When Dupree was 19, he started Nick’s Crusade — an online campaign to change the rules in Alabama.

Just a few days before his 21st birthday, he won. In 2008, he decided to move to New York City.

“I assisted him moving to New York, which was very, very scary for me,” says Dupree’s mother, Ruth Belasco. “But, I figured that his joy would outweigh my fear.”

New York feels like a million and ten years ago. Lately I am taken aback by how such small moments can impact us. It is strange how moments, how nights, how a single conversation, a single trip inhabits you and your heart. I may be speaking of time. I don’t know. For some reason lately I think I am still three hours ahead or if I look at a clock my brain rounds time upwards, to the east. I am parsing through my trip still and probably will be forever.

The past three nights when I’m in bed drifting to sleep I have, well, it’s not a dream so much as a vision. I am back in New York, I have returned there . Only I know every place there is to know, not a single corner or street or shadow is unknown to me. Then I realize it isn’t that I know the city. It is that I have become an expanse. It isn’t that I’ve grown or am a giant. It’s that I am an expression of space. The word     {gardens gardens gardens}    repeats itself in my head. And I realize I am some kind of growing thing, plant if a plant were a location or at least my expanse is tangentially related to a plant. I am inside of a vastness of gardens that grow and spread and fill New York with themselves. Plants becoming more plants, pouring over sidewalks and curling around terraces. It is as if I am as one would be if one were sinking into another person’s body from above them but not sexually, not as invasion, not as an encounter with the Other. But like a cohabitation, a ghost above flesh or a ghost below flesh. And this isn’t a dream, remember, it is a vision.   {garden garden garden}     my head keeps singing, as I have returned to the city to fill it. I grow and I grow and I grow     {garden garden garden}     but I am not overtaking New York, but in some kind of superposition with it, our bodies, our expanses coinciding.     {garden}   then ceases to be a word but an approximation of a place. This vision has to do with desire, I know that much. But I haven’t revealed the particulars to myself yet. The whole vision seems to be me knowing something I don’t know yet. As if I am the two spaces, the superposition. As though I am coinciding with myself, keeping something to and from myself. I am not in control of the narrative. Imagine the most still hallucination possible. Maybe then you’ll have it.

And eventually I fall asleep good and proper. 

Fuck, people are rude in New York… I love it, I fit right in. I literally thrive off this shit, like go on - yell at me on the subway, push me in the street — I’ll do it back, let’s play. City of dreams, man.
