Currently missing my morning view in Morocco and planning a trip to a much warmer and sunnier place.

New York in January

5th avenue new york city

When its 100 degrees in New York, it’s 72 in Los Angeles. When its 30 degrees in New York, in Los Angeles it’s still 72. However, there are 6 million interesting people in New York, and only 72 in Los Angeles.

― Neil Simon, playwright

On my morning walk with Jasper this morning, I noticed that virtually no other people were crazy enough to be outdoors, except other dog owners. It’s rare for the streets to feel this empty on a Sunday morning.

An afternoon at the Guggenheim

I saw dazzling light installations at the ZERO: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s–60s exhibit at the Guggenheim. I find light installations incredibly interesting, and have been dying to see this exhibit since it first opened. The Guggenheim has a strict no camera policy (that they enforce) so unfortunately I have no images to share.

The Empire State Building

Truth be told, I’ve never been up to the top of the Empire State Building. I definitely want to visit very soon. It’s open 7 days a week until 2am—I think a night visit would be an incredible experience.

Fall in Central Park

This is what fall is supposed to look like, and Central Park in the fall is a thing of beauty. I’m in love with the way the light hits all the warm colors and creates a soft halo that looks almost magical.
