"Sounds like a new drawing —happy purple-haired Amanda in a snow globe. I can imagine it being sold in 'I <3 NY' souvenir stores," said Kate, when she heard me commenting that the world looked like a snow globe from our office window.
I was standing by the window trying to get the perfect shot of the rainbow glitter snow globe in front of the city, but the magic didn't happen until my friend Yong Hwa supported my quest by coming over and offering to hold it so we could get the angle just right.
8.5 million humans live in NYC, so running into a delightful one you know on a random train in a random neighborhood at a random time is a pretty wonderful surprise. This morning my work friend Yong Hwa and I crossed paths on a train we both almost never take, and we were both super pleased about the encounter.
Today we went downtown on an adventure—to get coffee in an ice cream cone! The lovely man who made them for us threw out his first try because he didn't think it was pretty enough for our pictures. The ones we received were indeed beautiful, and they tasted great too!
