Dan White, musician, blogger, and brother-in-law, encouraged us all to join a project last week called
We would all create something – anything, and the completed gallery would be a variety of projects from a variety of artists. I made this, a mosaic in itself, of photos and memories from my NYC trip last year.
A person I follow on twitter used to, or still does, #thankfulThursday tweets. A few blog readers will know I kind of have a thing for Thursdays. They’re just the perfect time of the week – I’m no longer trying to get into it, I’m not too far from being done with it. I’m very present on Thursdays. I was afraid after going to New York last year, in the words of Anne, it would spoil regular life for me. I worried I would want to move there (and I kinda do) but that I’d have to divorce Michael to do it and also sell all my earthly goods and win the lottery. I was so delighted to find that visiting there didn’t make me dissatisfied at all. Instead it just added to a lifetime of happiness. “I’ve been to New York. New York!” I breathed that happy in and the thought just compacted all the other happy ones, so that I felt more full of contentment than ever. I felt glad New York exists, that I could visit it any time I wanted, that I knew people there.
Apparently it’s a New York City week, and I’m not sure why because I didn’t even watch the Glee finale until last night. But I think, really, it’s a thankfulThursday sort of week, in which I count the goodnesses in life, of which having been to New York City, is only one.
