Day Off!

I handed in two articles I’ve been working on and now I get to play. I’m going to go shopping for something to wear for my Tedx talk and then I’m going to see Gravity.

On my way home from errands I passed by Jane Street where they were having a block party. The vibe there was so happy and generous. Everyone was having such a great time, I couldn’t possibly exaggerate it. Some blocks, for whatever reason, are … better. I lived on 11th Street between Greenwich and Washington, for instance. I don’t know if it’s still like this now, but when I lived there in the 1980’s it had a great feel, it was friendly and neighborly like this. This section of Jane Street has always had this positive vibe. This is the block where that same family always comes and sells Christmas trees every year. They wrote a book about it and I met them at a party last year.

These guys were enjoying the party and the music from above.
