Langston Hughes (1902-1967) The author and “Poet Laureate of Harlem” quit Columbia University in 1922, broke with his father, and worked a season growing onions on a truck-garden farm on Staten Island. He remembers “There was something about such work that made you feel important . . seeing [the onions] go off to feed the great city of New York. Your onions!” He slept in the barn on a pile of hay and visited Port Richmond during his free time. His experiences on Staten Island are recounted in his autobiography The Big Sea (1940).

Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
