hitting the beat with my body
eating salty french fries by the sea and tasting the ocean on my fingers
the velvety, full feeling of an orange section before it bursts open in my mouth
the scent of a cat's yawn
butterfly kisses
the tally system
swings
lying in warm laundry
people who will unabashedly sing at the top of their lungs with me
proper grammar, syntax, and spelling
even numbers
the musky smell of first rain
saving bugs from imminent death
the macaroni and cheese crayon
warmth
yellow cake with milk chocolate frosting and round sprinkles
removing poppy caps at the first of spring
mixtapes/CDs
bossa nova jazz and crickets on warm summer nights
waking yourself up from a dream by boisterously laughing out loud at its silliness
lightning bugs
finding something that you thought you lost

About 5 weeks ago I made a vow to myself some time ago that by my 30th birthday, I would be living in my favorite city in the world, New York. 

Today my dream came true. ❤️

About 12 weeks ago [I was caught off guard tonight in a most unexpected way.]

Riding in the cab home, taking it all in after a 12.5-hour day covering the Met Gala, following my manic weekend covering the White House Correspondents' Dinner, and it was a full 3/4 of the way across the Williamsburg Bridge before I even noticed the Manhattan skyline to my right and felt my heart surge like it normally does; before I got that hit remembering where I am.

New York.

And I realized that it took that long to feel that rush tonight not because I was distracted, or exhausted, but because suddenly for the first time it didn't feel like New York anymore. Didn't feel like some enchanting place I was visiting, or even that strangely familiar, but mysterious city I fell in love with so many years ago.

For the first time, it didn't feel like New York.

Because it felt like home. 

What a surreal, beautiful moment to stumble upon.

About 3 weeks ago "Everyone decides what love is for them. Some of us stop at practicality. And some of us will only stop when the most profound love connection walks through the door. The practical ones have a much better chance at lasting. But the soulful ones actually have a chance to touch God. Their odds are lower, but they don't much care. Better an occasional banquet with God than three meals a day with a stranger. Pick your path."

About 4 weeks ago [New York surprises me yet again.]

The thing I love about New York is how magically unexpected it always is. On any given day, you can meet the most incredible person ever that will forever change your life. Until the the next day when you meet someone even more incredible. Take a different way home and stumble upon mind-blowing, provocative street art. Collect a harrowing tale from a Pakistani cab driver. Say yes on a whim and end up in some crazy warehouse party in Bushwick.

Or perhaps round past the ice cream truck and come across your old med school classmate you haven't seen in four years doing Double-Dutch barefoot at the Do the Right Thing 25th anniversary block party in Bed-Stuy. Which is what happened to me today.

I love you, New York.

About 11 weeks ago [Ever wondered what baby teeth look like in your skull? <shudders>]

I'm actually really amazed I'd never seen this before, or even pondered what it might look like.

I'm also now thoroughly creeped out.

(Hat-tip: +I fucking love science's Facebook page.)
