Dear New York,
It’s October, Officially Fall, Autumn – my favorite, fave time of the year. I see you, in my mind’s eye and feel you in my heart. That breeze as I turn the corner onto any street facing west. I’m making my way toward my oasis, Central Park, to see the strat of leaves turning and take in the yummy stench of roasting chestnuts and the newer sweet nuts, on street carts. You love that they are there but don’t need to partake.
I love the feel in the air, the excitement of the school year starting (my forever inner kid) and the bustle in the street that Summer is over and there is lots to do. Work, meetings, classes, dog-walking, hospital visits, dips into the Museums, theater tickets to buy, buses to catch, pizzas to eat, kids to drop off or pick-up, friends to bump into, Iphones to answer, cabbies to talk to, lattes to sip, sandwiches to much on, doormen to salute, nurses to smile at, magazines to peruse and the bench in the park – to park my ass on – to sit for hours and just watch the Autumn around me in the city I grew up in.
See ya soon… before Fall falls.
