Time To Pretend
Every weekend, I find a random bench in a random park where I partake in a random activity. Sometimes, I’m shoveling Starbucks’ Pumpkin Bread in my mouth in between pages of my book of the week (currently Night Circus). Other times, I’m laying on a quilted blanket with friends enjoying philosophical discussions on “Why Being In Your 20’s Is Awesome“. But most of the time, I’m just taking it all in – being a young guy in New York City, hopeful of a full life ahead. I imagine what it would be like to be completely free- living unadulterated in a city that never sleeps – throwing my covers back and joining in the insomnia. Alas, I’m only human and need sleep so that whole “unadulterated” thing is going to have to wait.
As a side note, that incredibly amazing french bulldog above belongs to actor Hugh Jackman. We met him while he was out for a walk. His name is Dali and he’s going to be mine one day.
