Walk Like An American

Looking Up

I’ve Fallen in Love with the Southern Sky

Clouds over Alabama

I’ve always loved looking up. In New York City, the sight of skyscrapers towering toward heaven inspires me. It reminds me of the greatness of the human mind, and all we have achieved. Here in the South, I have fallen in love with the sky. I also love that it’s February, and I can still walk around in just jeans and a t-shirt. I know it’s cold up north, so I made this video for y’all-a window into summer, to maybe warm your day up a little.
