Global warming is underrated! Everyone seems kinda blinded by the sunlight pouring into NYC today, willingly confused by the warmth, giddily bumping into each other on the streets, pedaling yellow bicycle taxis the wrong way up avenues. I almost caught myself skipping in midtown. The air finally smells like things again, and birds from Coney Island are flying inland to come scream down at us. I’m leaving for Australia in a week – where it’s even sunnier. I’m enjoying a welcome rush of creative energy and the calm that comes with finally having my wrangled my business affairs into order after spending so much of last year in half-attention while touring.
