Lest you think that New York was all navel gazing, I wanted to share a few things from my trip.
I went out for a late walk with Alejna, Debbie, Gwen, Neil and Sarah. We walked by the Plaza Hotel and talked about Eloise. Four of us had drinks at some random asshole bar and I was fascinated to hear what happens when one's parents are Esperantists.
I saw a cool bird weather vane and a nice Henry Darger exhibit at the folk art museum.
I had dinner with an old friend whose friendship still makes me happy. I met his wife and child for the first time. I felt more comfortable with the wife than I'd expect for someone I'd just met. The child I wanted to eat with a spoon.
I put up with Neil telling me (three times) that he has never read my blog. (I'm all for honesty, but enough is enough, right?)
I wandered around Brooklyn with my favorite cousin and her guy. We shopped for new sunglasses but in the end held out for beer.
No really, if they had been cheaper I would have snapped them up!
