Tonight was one of those nights when I'm reminded that living in New York City is pretty okay, after all. I just got back from the Met's gracious free opera in Central Park (Verdi's "La Traviata"), and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. This is one of my favorite things to do as a New Yorker, and I'm glad that I moved back in time to experience it once again. Sadly, I thought those days were over. Apparently not.
And now it officially begins--at least for me--my favorite time and place to be alive: autumn in New York City! Next Monday brings my second favorite New York City event, the US Open, and in just under a month press screenings for the NYFF kick into gear, which is my favorite event period, NYC or otherwise. At that point, my seratonin level reaches naturally ecstatic proportions and life becomes impossibly glorious.
Thanks, New York. You're slowly sneaking your way back into my heart...
