Yacht Jaunt: Ultimate 4th of July Escapism

I was a Floridian celebrating 4th of July in the nation’s first capital, Philadelphia–partying with Philadelphians; A few cups of that cranberry and vodka made this What Scene  yacht party seem like a never-ending fantasy. For me, it was a night of surreal observation: I enjoyed the escapism, but I also kept Juneteenth in mind, and how national pride and patriotism was this fickle thing that floats up and down like buoys.

For a moment, I was able to put things into perspective and just let it rest on standby. The brain, like any working machine, needed a break.

This party was the ultimate escapism: We boarded the Ben Franklin Yacht and literally left the land; we were seduced by the rhythm and vibes provided by Tierra Whack, DJ Sylo, and Danny Chung; and we demolished the BBQ buffet. I’m already preparing to escape again next year.
