"One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years." -- Tom Wolfe

I don't know what it is about this week, but something just seems to be clicking. Like I'm where I'm supposed to be, when I'm supposed to be there and for all the right reasons I both know, and don't know yet. 

Blind clarity, perhaps? I'll take it. 

A reader left a comment on yesterday's post mentioning that I seemed to be embracing the New York aesthetic well. It made me smile from ear to ear. Because I really am liking how New York looks and feels on me. It just fits. So thanks NYC. Admittedly, I was a bit nervous how the transition would go (all natural self-doubts I think) but I truly feel like I belong. And that's always a great feeling.
