It’s a small world after all.

This weekend as I was introducing my friend Lauren to my favorite parts of New York, we walked through my old neighborhood-my favorite neighborhood in all 5 burroughs-Brooklyn Heights. During the couple hours that we spent there roaming from Pier 1, to the Promenade, and Hot Bagels doing crossword puzzles, I ran into my old super, Danny, and my yoga instructor from the Y. What a small world!

And yes, my favorite property on Love Lane is still beautiful and kickin’. When can I move in?

New building on 23rd street.

Does anyone else find this building very narrow? These architects are playing a big game of Jenga if you ask me. Whooooaaa, lets see how tall we can make it before it falls down!


Waterfall, everybody drink!

Extraordinary moments.

What control do we have of making our ordinary days, extraordinary? I pondered this yesterday as I attempted a different route to work, a 5 mile walk from Manhattan into Brooklyn, and a long bubble bath. Seeing something that I hadn’t seen before, feet touching new pavement, eyes at new people, seemed to wake me up. A lady toasts to me from her wine glass at a sidewalk restaurant, I watch people experience the glorious architecture of the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time, I feel different air, have a conversation with a local pub owner.


Be present in the moment, take a different path, look directly at the world as it stares you back in the face.

I find ordinary a day of repetitive tasks and events. If I do something exactly as I had the day before, the week before, the month before, what additional experience am I having? How will I remember both days as equally, or even as separate moments? Where do I learn more about life? I most likely won’t even remember differences between those days, and time will get lost in the past. Even if the that difference is small, its impact can be much larger than you think. The next time you feel yourself in a pattern of the same, as comfortable as that can be sometimes, maybe go out and experience different. That different can turn something ok, into something amazing.

Telemegaphone Dale stands seven metres tall on top of the Bergskletten mountain overlooking the idyllic Dalsfjord in Western Norway.

When you dial the Telemegaphone’s phone number the sound of your voice is projected out across the fjord, the valley and the village of Dale below.”

To those in the village of Dale, I am truly sorry. I promise I won’t call and sing my rendition of Don’t Worry Be Happy. I can do that in the shower.
