CHAPTER 3: Between The City Of Stars,The Moon, & New York City
Entry #22: " Nothing On You, Reprise"
After Chris left it was time to say goodbye to everyone else. One last embrace for my family here in New York. I can never repay all of you, for all that you have done for me. I said it earlier and I'll say it one last time, Thank you for accepting me and welcoming me into your family. Thank you for helping me to create a space for myself in this world. Thank you for teaching me how to live a life after not being able to live one for so many years. I am so grateful for our bond and forever thankful for what we created together. I originally thought I was just going to leave because ya'll need me to go to LA first. I wasn't even supposed to leave right now. Then Corona snuck up on us, and suddenly all our plans had to be put on hold. We're gonna get to fulfill all of those plans, somewhere down the line. When we do, it will mean so much more than we originally intended it to. Gio we'll go for our bike ride, Ant we are gonna learn how to skateboard, Jenny we'll get our nails done, boys, we'll create music again, Chris, we'll go to a concert, Jes and Julio, we'll see us back to work and on stage again. This is not the end. As I said, it is just all of us getting deeper into the story. We'll see each other soon on another page, in another chapter. God, I love you all so damn much. While I'm away, I'm gonna leave you with some of that love, okay? They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, I hope my love for you nourishers and pushes you to continue to love, even in the darkest and most uncertain times ahead of us. My family - Jes, Julio, Chris, Gio, Anthony, Jenny and Alex, Dom, Jacob, Jeudy, Dan, and everyone else who I became really close to over the last 3 months... From the bottom of my heart thank you for everything. Jes, Julio and I sang a song called "Nothing On You", on the street on NYE. As the songs goes, Nothing on you, baby, nothing on you. Nothing will ever hold a candle close to all of you. I love you, my family... forever, your, Roy.
It's time for me to take my last liberty walk home. Our time in New York is coming to a close... for now. And that's okay, I got so much done. There is still so much left to do. I'll get to do it all. There are still many more pages to be filled in.. With that said, I'm tired. This entry has let so many tears out of my body. I have more to say, so I will say it tomorrow before I leave on my flight. I am so happy that I now have tonight as one of the best memories that will stick with me for life. Nothing on you, nothing on them, nothing on us.
Love, Roydom Lucian

CHAPTER 1: Welcome To New York
Entry #7: "Always Remember Us This Way"
This entry is made in collaboration with Love Me Hug Me. Love Me Hug Me is a new pop up exhibition with interactive capabilities for participants to experience a touching immersive love story. It tells the story of the reoccurrence of a couple whose love memory is gradually stolen by Alzheimer’s disease. I had the honor of visiting this exhibit, and I was really touched by the beautiful love story that unfolded in front of my eye, via a mini movie and the 7 beautiful interactive rooms. I hope the be as fortunate to have a love story, that touching, one day. You can check out more photos throughout the week on my IG and read my brand new entry, "Always Remember Us This Way', about my difficult love life, with more photos included, on roydomlucian.com. Thanks for having me @lovemehugmepopup. I'm so grateful that I got to experience this. Check out the exhibit open now until March 10, 2020. Love Me Hug Me is located in SoHo, at, 139 Wooster Street, New York, New York.
