I saw this couple last night in Bryant Park and asked them if I could snap their photo. After showing them the results, I sat down for a chat. The first leaves were shaking themselves off the trees in the strong breeze and I asked what the occasion for their picturesque picnic was figuring an anniversary or birthday. The man put his cards down and smiled at me saying, “I have been married to the best girl in the world for 30 years, I am doing my best to make sure she knows that.”
While our first date may have been like the photo above, today was equally lovely if culturally less high-brow. McDs, furniture shopping, and a lot of gourmet sashimi takeout (plated at home of course with micro basil, served with homemade miso soup and pork chips) make for a splendid last summer Friday. Thanks, T for a great day - IN
After years of being in different countries, T and I have shared the last 3 years in the same city. I am being melodramatic but with T being in Spain for the past few days, I’ve been missing him tremendously. Maybe because it’s raining so I’m getting nostalgic and emotional. Or maybe because we really have gotten inseparable in how we live our daily lives. Or maybe I’m just jealous that he is in San Sebastian. Either way, I’m looking forward to him coming home this weekend - IN
I am on a campaign to convince T that the beach is a lovely place. I might resort to straight-out lying about where we go on the weekend. I concede that sand can be annoying but the sounds of the ocean, the warmth of the sun, and the subtle breezes, when they do come, are divine - IN
