July 4th, 2021 – New York City

I don’t even know how to tackle this one. Yesterday was one of the best days I’ve had years. And not just in the dreadfully empty year and a half either, but in real years. So as you may have read yesterday, I was out by 5:30am walking north to Central Park to write a…

Back in New York July 2021

Good morning. This story might be a bit haphazard. I’ve written about my days in in New York many times, but it seems intimidating this morning for some reason.
