During my business trip to NYC this week, I got to meet up with a certain man and his dear friend Janet.
Here we are at a dessert place in K-town, after finally seeing Yufei at a dance class. I know believe that all of those videos he’s been sending me of him dancing are indeed actually real!
The dessert, and some lavender milk tea:
Few cities excite and energize (and sap) me the way that New York City does. My very quick trip was productive. I met with the rector of the jazz university in Vienna, and we had some quite fruitful discussion. I caught up with my former student Luke Meyer, in town between gigs. And of course I saw Yufei.
Waking up before sunrise on Thursday, I marveled yet again at the view of all these buildings (from my 25th-floor window) and all this energy on the streets of New York.
And then I got to LaGuardia, where the new Southwest Airlines terminal is luxurious and a very happy addition to travel to and from NYC.
