From a dentist appointment (unexpectedly) on the 69th floor of the Chrysler Building. Being up so high made me experience the same feelings I had when I first moved to New York six and a half years ago; the wonder of all the life going on at any given moment. Watching cabs slide down avenues, specks along crosswalks, and the inexplainable silence of being up so, so high with a loud city below.

Peaceful be thy silent slumber
Peaceful as thy pure sweet life

From a weekend down in New Orleans.
Well guys, it happened. My dream mirror arrived over the weekend — I’ve been pining and drooling over it for a while now and, wow. She’s a five-foot stunner, and a piece I’ll be carrying with me for a lifetime.
And I am immensely enjoying the process of shaping this home into all of my dreams.
