As many of you may know, this past Saturday the world stood up for science. And if you don’t know, the vitality of science is like no other. In fact, there simply shouldn’t be a discussion on the importance of science, perhaps because it’s… oh I don’t know, common sense? More than 500+ marches sprouted across the country, one such place was Raleigh, North Carolina. Fellow contributor, friend, and incredible artist, Ryan shares his photographs from the event.

I am a very restless person. Not in a sort of impatient way, but after some time, I itch for an escape. And perhaps it’s because I continuously look for an out to my mundane responsibilities (feel free to judge, maybe your thoughts will cause a stir in my mentality), but reasons aside, I love to travel. And for some close minded mentality, I always strive to visit wonders outside of the U.S., therefore, recently, after I finished an internship I decided to visit those closest to me. Here is a recount of a 2-week trip, from Philadelphia, New York City, Raleigh, and Wilmington. Thank you, friends, for:
showing me in a different perspective the importance of eating healthy
teaching me how to grill
having insanely philosophical conversations
showing me the beach
and most importantly, taking time out of your days to let me into your homes
Thought # 7: On a separate visit to NYC, in a random impulsive decision fueled by youthful energy, I viewed Times Square at 4 am. Let me tell you, Times Square at 4 am is a docile beast, replete with the never overawe of its lights, but silence, and a handful of people. It is magnificent, I felt free to run around (which we did), wherever I pleased and gawk without worrying if my presence is in someone else’s way. Try it out sometime.
