This is the first time in several years, I will be in NYC a few days for fun–pure old fun: art, friends, walking around this glorious city, trying to absorb some of this energy. Seriously , you New York aficionados know this. The minute you leave the airport you feel it…waves of energy, pulsating, shimmering, pounding. Sometimes I forget how much I love it here. Wish I could have lived here a year or two when I was younger, but being able to show up now and then is almost as good.
I’m tired and watching our Pres on CNN. Which is making me completely exhausted. What do I expect him to do? Be younger and tougher and perhaps a different gender. No, he’s so wonderful compared to that last sleazy joke, there’s no comparison. But I do wish he were younger and exuded more power. And I’m in a position to talk about age without being politically incorrect, okay?
