Where do I even begin???
My beloved New York City… This city is such a whirlwind of energy. It just sucks you up into it. It’s been non-stop fabulous fun since Miss M and I arrived into Laguardia airport Thursday morning.
Since then we’ve hung out at Washington Square Park, reunited with family and friends, took a side trip to Port Jefferson (on Long Island), attended an amazing baby shower for my cousin upstate, and today – the icing on the cake – a purely joyful afternoon at Coney Island for Miss M’s NY birthday celebration.
It brings so much joy to my heart seeing how Miss M loves being here too… Settling into the vibe of the city… Dancing her ass off to the house music on the boardwalk at Coney Island… Yabbering on about all the different subway trains she wants to ride… She is a New Yorker. She was born here. It will always have a piece of her soul. As it does mine.
Being back here in the big apple feels so good. Unlike my last visit in December, when I was exhausted and in pain from the cancer (before I started treatment), this time around I feel healthy and strong. I’m able to keep up with the city. I’ve got energy and stamina.
The days have been a long string of happy moments and feel good vibes. I keep saying, “Why would you live anywhere else?”
Thank you NY for bringing me so much joy. For allowing me to forget about the cancer for a few days. For sparking a light inside Miss M and putting a smile on her face. For providing the perfect backdrop for life to unfold. I love you NY!
Peace. – T
