We’re off to New York City. We’ll get together with Jon’s daughter Emma, see some movies and eat good food. We’ll go to MOMA, Jon’s favorite museum and The Frick (I want to see the painting The Goldfinch. I just finished reading the book of the same name, by Donna Tartt) and maybe the Whitney if there’s time. We have lots of plans and only three days to fit it all in. But then that’s what the city is all about.
Usually when I go away I don’t take my computer, but this time I’ll be blogging from the hotel. After my staycation I’m full of blogging energy. Even if we didn’t get to one museum, just being in such a different environment, with all those different colors, sounds and smells all that activity, gets my creative juices flowing.
And, knowing the animals are in good hands with our sitter Deb, I’m looking forward to not having to get up in the morning and feed them. Although once I’m in the city I tend to gravitate to the dogs and horses and squirrels and birds. The parks and animals become a touchstone for me.
But I’m excited about the change of scenery, the constant stimulation, something to break the routine of winter.
