NYC On My Mind

So what if I have been back in Paris since two weeks, NYC is still fresh on my mind. It is really just the day to day mundane moments that make me happiest. By the end of this post you will all be rolling your eyes towards heaven and hoping I will just move on to another subject. Thing is, don’t you delight in your day to day movements towards nothing in particular but instants of people, places and things that just make you feel like you are right where you want to be.

I cannot imagine that I am alone in enjoying personal and simple pleasures as much as the grand moments of life.

Something comforting about a familiar restaurant, a walk down a favorite street or looking in a store window or having your favorite piece of cake even though you know very well it is not necessary.

In a way, this is why I enjoy returning to places that are not actually my home, but at the same time, I feel at home. This does not come without some effort to search out places that tug at your heart strings as you are saying goodbye.

These photos are various moments in my days of walking around NYC and just enjoying being back and visiting places where I feel like I am a part of the scene. Even welcome, maybe.

I felt like going away for this weekend, but guess what? Every city I wanted to explore was quoting rain, rain, and more rain. I looked at London, Barcelona, Rome and even Marrakech. Result is I am staying put in Paris. My goals are going to see the Hopper exhibition at the Grand Palais, the Marilyn Monroe photos at Musee Maillol and finding a pair of winter ankel boots in natural colored suede with a warm interior lining. I DO NOT want to buy them at Jimmy Choo. Been there and have them in black. Want something not so mass-produced.

Just realised I am rambling right now. Baisers and bon weekend, Linda
