There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune

This was the scene from my apartment window a couple of days ago; thick, white flakes floating down upon the city.

But yesterday, the weather cleared, as can be seen here on Istiklal (Independence Avenue, which used to be the old Grande Rue de Pera in Ottoman Constantinople). . .

. . .And the sky turned blue.

About me

  • I'm Sunset Shazz
  • Living the dream in Istanbul, Turkey
  • I grew up in the hardscrabble streets of suburban Ottawa, Ontario, committing petty crime, insulting the elderly - basically the classic misspent youth. When I was 19, I moved to West Philly, where I put myself through the Wharton School by dealing crack and hustling. After stints in Paris and London, I eventually graduated and moved to San Francisco, where I put in eight years hard labor working for The Man. But now I pop bottles with models, deciding cracked crab or lobster - who says mobsters don't prosper?
