this was a good day

April 5, 2012 |  Category:   life nyc

And I needed that. 68 degrees. Brilliant sunshine. Trees in a haze of tiny green buds. Lunch with Nichole in Bryant Park (and hundreds of other New Yorkers and tourists, apparently) and coffee with Anna. Not a lick of work except a phone call and a few emails. Coming home and hanging out on the stoop with neighbors instead of sticking my head in a laptop for the rest of the afternoon.


A day off.
Clearing my head. My head sure needs it. It’s been full of crap.

    Looks and sounds absolutely wonderful. I think it would be nice to disconnect from my laptop (even phone) for a day. Probably essential for mental health, really.
    I’m glad you had a day off. Hope your Easter weekend is great.

    Reminds me of ICE Cube’s “It was a good day” song, with less gangsta.

    I love Bryant Park. Memories of having my brown bag lunch every day at my internship last summer. It always felt like WINNING something whenever we got a table to ourselves at prime lunch hour!

    This was a beautiful day – I was there! With my co-worker on a long lunch in the foreground of your second shot. I love that you caught this gorgeous day.

    PS Did you see Bill Cunningham there too? He bent down to take a shot of the flower bed (and who knows what else his keen eye had spied) right behind us.

    i lived in nyc for one summer and one of my favorite places was bryant park. i remember watching movies on monday nights at bryant park and even though there were hundreds of other people there, BP always made me feel like i was the only one there…it’s a magical little place…
