Just Like Starting Over: A Visit to NYC

Glimpsed at Union Square
On the day of my studio visit with Jesse Malin, I made sure to get into New York City super early--and not just so I could avoid rush hour traffic.  I had to do a little preliminary research for a project so tentative that I don't dare reveal even the tiniest details about it.

My quest brought me first to the lower East Side and Strand Bookstore, where I browsed at length.  Then I wandered over to the Union Square Greenmarket, swooned over the produce, and annoyed pedestrians when I stopped to photograph it.

Next stop was the Upper West Side by way of Grand Central Station:

My destination?  Lincoln Center, and the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

Of course once the research is done, the hard part begins: putting words down on paper.  That part starts tomorrow.  Wish me luck.
