Another week coming to a close...and another month done too! Time flies when you're having fun, right? Right. :)
It's crazy that in a few days September will be here, and those of us in NYC are already feeling the temperature start to trickle down, slowly as it always does this time of year, like a drip. But it's happening! And we'll go through the seasons as we always do. And soak up these mornings on the fire escape while we can...
But in fact, the change is always needed.
We all know that this is a challenging city to cultivate balance in; the geographical location itself is one of extremes: extreme heat and extreme chill; extreme energy; extreme population; extreme work, extreme play...you get the picture. It's the moments of neutrality, and balance that feel the most magical here, and while the intense humidity of the summer has us begging for the winter -- the transition is where the magic is. Fall will be here soon, guys. :)
And I think about it: Aviv+I are in our transitional days too, as we weed through this stuff and sell away. By the time October rolls around we'll be off! Starting a new cycle of what we're calling "nomad-ism" -- and we are very excited, actually, at the prospects of discovering a new home and new neighborhood to live in - potentially each and every month. If anything, it will most certainly keep us distracted from any polar vortexes that try to join the party this winter!
Speaking of new beginnings, a week or two ago we made some new friends from Red Hook, BK—a couple, who is moving to Connecticut after one of them was just accepted to Yale to pursue Sculpture. A new cycle of life indeed!
They needed a new bed frame for their move over there, and what luck! They chose ours. :)
Yesterday, our new friend and scholar came over to haul the frame away on the roof-rack of his VW 2003 Golf. While we regret not snapping a picture (man is that car cute with a bed-frame on its head!), I went outside and took a mental note of the little car I remember wanting so much the day I turned 16 and got my drivers license so long ago..
It's funny how perspectives change. How today, I can't even conceive of owning a car as long as we live here -- why would I need one when we can travel everywhere by foot? Or rent a car if we're going outside of the city? But in the next couple years or so, I imagine that will certainly change—depending on where in the world we end up next and what kind of life we choose to live.
And in a way, all things are cyclical, like the seasons. But no matter what comes, we have a choice to make it a good-time, every time.
So make this weekend a good one! And don't forget to click here and place a bet on our pig!!! :)
Have a fabulous Friday, everyone!
