Ah, New York state in December, how I’ve missed you…. um, mostly. I’m absolutely loving getting into the real holiday spirit, spending some quality time with family and friends, and bustling around my favorite city and my beloved hometown. I’m even handling the cold okay! But, is it possible we could talk to someone about getting the lights left on a little longer? The fact that it gets dark outside at 4:30pm is a tough adjustment, and I keep asking people if it really was always this way, considering I did spent like twenty consecutive winters here. For the most part though, I think the fact that I missed the holidays last year and likely will again in 2015 makes me cherish this time at home even more deeply.
Over the last seven days I descended from Albany into New York City and have been all over the place, from ice skating in Prospect Park to celebrating a friend’s birthday in Brooklyn to supporting the WPA at their festive holiday soiree at Webster Hall. This week, I’ll be doing more backyard exploring in both the five boroughs (well, at least three of them anyway) and then back up in Albany, while trying to sort out the logistics and flights for my next big adventure — announcement coming soon!
