Mayor Bill de Blasio announced yesterday that holders of New York City’s newly-launched municipal identity card will be granted a year’s worth of privileges at 33 participating cultural institutions, including some of the city’s premier museums. The benefits program, which was first floated as a possibility by cultural affairs commissioner Tom Finkelpearl in July, will launch with the card itself in January 2015. According to a document detailing the benefits offered by each institution posted online by the mayor’s office, the perks extended to cardholders have an aggregate value of $2,100.

Currently restless and more awake than I’d like to be pondering why I get this feeling that if I held my hands near each other in just the right way I could most certainly create fireballs and launch them. Oh, trust me, I know I can’t do any such thing, but try telling my body that!
“Please, be proud of the pieces that make you, you. Embrace the oddities and hold onto them with everything you have. These strange little quirks belong to us, and only us, and they are all absolutely vital in creating the bigger picture that is who we are.

Because when you are, the inevitability of other people believing in you and being proud too, is such an amazing bonus to the strength you already possess.”
