…First morning in Manhattan in a few years.  I love it here.
Everywhere I went last night people were speaking a language other than English.
NYC is different on a Sunday night, though.  Into the evening the streets empty out, which is a strange sight.  There were lots of clouds last night, lavender and plum, which gave the sky and the sky scrapers a spooky, haunted quality.  The Chrysler Building looked majestic. 
You should have seen it.
Today should be lots of walking, shopping and people watching, maybe a couple museums.

…Here are some quips from Facebook Friends last week:
-Let's see if wearing a Spiderman costume while I write helps. Better than coffee?
-As far as I can tell, the following conditions are out of fashion for women:
1. nymphomania (no longer exists)
2. menopause (must have a different name now, never hear the word spoken)
3. nipples (they are absolutely unfashionable and hidden in padded bras)
4. "the vapors" (whatever that was)
 -Most things in my life are influenced by Columbo.
