Friday in the City

A morning lie-in.  Check-in at choral rehearsal.  New shoes.  Tea with Jennifer Johnson Cano. Walk by the Dakota. Drink with Loo.  Dinner and Amalie with Robert Riordan.  Walk by the Wisconsin basketball team at the Westin.  Get my watch fixed at SWATCH in Times Square.

Just another Friday in New York City.
