Had to go into NYC for a dentist appointment,
Had a lovely breakfast with Mr Husband.
Had meat lasagna for lunch;
I asked to be seated at the back of the quiet restaurant,
in busy NYC, away from the crowds and hot streets.
I had many glasses of cold water, and slowly ate the meal,
savouring it. I could tell, as I ate it, that it had red wine in it.
It's rare to have the time to just sit and slowly eat,
and I appreciated that.
I got a sense of peace from it.
I meandered through 2 clothing stores, lost a lot of that peace,
until I was back home.
I felt I was indeed in a cultural wasteland, my goodness.
Will leave it at that!
Back home, I worked on a short essay and hung out with Cleo.
I love my newly cleaned work space, with icons of many of my
I am glad that at home I can live surrounded by beauty,
quiet and good books.
