to new york we go.

{queens to midtown to times square}

{the frattiest -and most delicious - brunch location with sister :)}

{SNOW. on the GROUND. in scarsdale}

my last musings over here on da inter-web described my anxiety over not being able to slow things down - but it wasn't something a little jaunt up north couldn't fix.  when i got off at grand central station at 11 am in the morning on friday (with a whole day in front of me, as i didn't have anyone to play with until 5 pm), i kicked myself for a second realizing that i hadn't printed off directions to ANYWHERE.  that, and for the fact that i didn't have an iphone.  i glanced up and realized that, some 30 blocks down the way, i could see union square from where i was standing.  so to union square i went.

there's something about that city - that N-Y-C - that makes you feel so so small and is so so humbling.  as quickly as everyone was walking, as dedicated as they were to answering that email on their blackberry, i was just as quickly trying to slow it down.  as the day went on, i wondered whether or not i could actually live in this city. but that's a story for another time. back to the grind and SAN FRANCISCO on saturday! :)
