Sometimes even the most frenetic of cities collectively slows down. There's not much that causes New York to take a deep breath. But that's exactly what has happened today as the heat and humidity have nestled in like a down comforter. In an attempt to get some air, I've come up here to the amazing Highline to relax, read, and soak my bare feet in the cool water. Perhaps appropriately, I'm reading Slowness, by Carl Honore. A wonderful investigation into slow movements and the search for balance and fulfillment in an accelerating world. I'm certainly enjoying my slow day today.
But now I'm off to meet friends for a glass of wine. Chilled please!
