A wandering mind + solitude is hardly the best combination for an overnight flight. My brain was inundated with ideas for this blog on-the-go, given that I have a rather touristy itinerary for the next 72 hours. I'm currently caught in between a complex web of wanting to explore NYC, catch up with friends after nearly a decade, have a leisurely break, AND blog while doing all of that. Right now, I'm crawling out of this web only way I know how to - COFFEE! No fancy latte art going on here though, I'm as basic as it gets when it comes to coffee.
Also, checked in at my home for the weekend thanks to the kindest, most generous New Yorker I know. Entered into what felt like a sunny oasis although it is supposedly Midtown Manhattan. I got here fully prepared to soak in spectacular streetscape and skyline views, but this rooftop is another matter! The Empire State and Brooklyn Bridge views are simply unbeatable, and I'm just sitting here, dumbfounded and marveling at the hustle of the city below. I have to say it: I lost my heart to this rooftop and apartment, and it is taking a great deal of effort to be up and about. But would it really count as a New York trip if I didn't go to Central Park?
Do you ever do that thing when you are extremely excited - where you play out your entire trip in your head and even have background music to go with each sequence? Well, my showreel consisted of me sitting at Central Park and working with my fav tunes. It may sound foolish, but in hindsight, it is pretty darn euphoric! For most, blogging = work, but these blurbs are such wonderful time capsules from my vantage point. What an unbelievably exciting digital era we live in; I would've never thought that there would come a day when I could #blogonthego.
There is so much calm here even amidst the urban turbulence, so as soon as I post this, I'll unplug and soak in some NYC air with my best friend. Until I see you here again, how about we groove together, virtually, to my playlist that is currently entertaining a few onlookers?
