Today I . . .
- Woke up in New York City.
- Ate brunch at Coppella at 14th Street and 7th Avenue with my mother and a publishing friend/contact.
- Walked over to the Highline, where I met Gianluca Vassallo from FreePortrait.org. He and I had a wonderful conversation about the connection between consumerism and freedom. I took this photo of him:
And he took this photo of me:
- Wandered around lower Manhattan people watching and photographing architecture.
- Treated the Marimekko store like a museum. (Slowly browsing, taking pictures and ignoring the gift shop.) I did make them look at pictures of my Marimekko lampshade. Like they had a choice.
- Met up with my sister and niece at the Jonathan Adler store in the West Village.
- Wandered around the village for awhile until taking the subway back up to Washington Heights, where we ate deeply delicious Bar Mitzvah leftovers.
- Took the subway elevator with a family of Comic-Con attendees, including this super fun mom. I told her that “My shoes are super comfortable.” (It’s my super power.)
- Am relieved that I was able to get through my aliyah at yesterday’s Bar Mitzvah without flubbing the Hebrew or forgetting the tune.
Now your turn. What did you do today?
