The other day I was laying on a sun-warmed rock in Central Park and realized, as I do several times a day, that despite my recent anxiety over feeling like I am living an aimless life (other than supporting D), I really have a pretty great life.
Rather than complaining about things I am unhappy about (crowded subways, my dwindling bank account) it’s time to start sharing things that make me happy. Both on here and with my family and friends. Here is list one.
1. Saxophone players on otherwise deserted wooded paths in Central Park
2. College football season
3. Liege waffles (the best place I know to get these outside of Belgium is a food truck called Wafels and Dinges here in NYC. There are several stable locations, including one at the southeast corner of Central Park).
4. Seasonal coffee drinks. I love pumpkin spice lattes and the most exciting time of the year for me is the arrival of eggnog lattes. I’m a little obsessed.
5. Fireflies. They’re a little out of season, but I love the thought of them year round.
