Summer is often full of outdoor activities, parties, celebrations, lounging, yard sales, hikes, and plenty other activities. In the past week or so I’ve been asking people close to me what comes to their mind are when they think of summer. Some replies I got were:
These answers were generally expected, but there was one I was surprised to not hear mentioned; and that is moving to a new apartment. Looking back at all the times I’ve moved into a new place it’s always been in the heat of the summer. The feeling of transitioning into something new is exciting, scary, yet freeing all at once. On Ari Lennox’s song “New Apartment” from her soulful debut album Shea Butter Baby she captures the feeling of moving into a new spot on your own and attaining that feeling of independence. Ari Lennox occupies a space for the 20 somethings that are beginning to find their independence as women and navigating lives full of love, struggle, fun, and evolution. It’s soul food for all the Hot Girls out there this summer.

About The Curator - KA II
I was raised in a community that believes in and practices the act of love, spirituality, understanding, and openness. These beliefs and practices are my foundation in this life and continue to drive my pursuit of knowledge, wisdom, and freedom. I also come from a place where the gift of rhythm and movement are interwoven into each other and into the fabric of life. It is never one without the other.
Music and Dance are not just things we do and enjoy. They are a necessity. In times of joy we dance, in times of triumph we turn the music up a little louder, in times of stress and unbalance we close our eyes and dance. It is how we feel our emotions and what ignites our creativity, intellectual abilities, and the way we see the world. Without the two, life would have no color, art, love, or culture.
Music and movement have always been the guiding light of creativity and the master teacher, therefore I aim to share how they elevate my mind, heart, and soul to think wider and to think with compassion, wit, and intellect. I hope you enjoy the content. Peace
