today was one of those lovely and perfect new york city days. a walk through central park. coffee and grapefruit with a girlfriend in a midtown cafe with dark wooded walls and windows thrust open. lunch at the restaurant above my upper west side grocery mart of choice. a delightful chai latte from a new (to me) local coffee shop, the sensuous bean (go, go, go--it's such a lovely experience). and an hour of just sitting. on a bench on central park west. marveling at the green of the trees above and cool air that the threat of rain ushered in. it was a day of small and simple joys. one of those necessary days that just really fills you up.
here's hoping friday and weekend prove much the same.
