This afternoon, I met up with two friends. First I had tea with Anna, which was so lovely. We chatted under some trees, discussed our work and lives and then all too soon, she had to get back to her errands. Then I walked over to Tisch where I met Cindy, who is briefly back in NYC for work. I was super excited to see her and think I may have talked to her too much and walked her feet off, given that she is still jet-lagged and working hard, despite her exhaustion. She got to see my office, we wandered around Soho and had dinner in Whole Foods, and the weather was lovely and mild. It was, indeed, a lovely break from writing and research. Cindy looked really beautiful and it was just wonderful to spend some time together.
