Life is filled with so many ordinary moments as well as those annoying moments (like getting the news that your pipes froze and then burst while you were away on a business trip). With the lingering depression that America is in a "recession" and hearing of the millions who either lost their jobs or are about to lose their jobs I needed a "pick-me-up". Thank God my college/graphic design/artist/foodie friend Carolyn came to my rescue this weekend. She planned for us (highlighted map and all) and I didn't even have to think about where we were going. I had to work in the morning but had the afternoon free in the city. We walked through about a million and one galleries in Chelsea and it was heaven - just what the Dr. ordered. I had the roughest week prior and this was like a tall glass of relief. Walking through the galleries I felt such peace and inspiration. I felt that "ahhh" feeling. I liked it. And Carolyn was great company. We had a wonderful time looking at all the different artwork and our meal at Vatan was a food-gasmic experience...dare I say! We were totally blown away by our meal. Totally. I don't even know where to start with explaining our nineteen course Indian vegetarian meal. All I can say is it was amazing! I love NYC. There is just NO place like it! Here are a few of my iPhone pics from the day. Carolyn has more (she took pics of our meal at Vatan) and maybe she'll send me some so I can share too. Life is also filled with those "ahhhhhh" moments like the ones that I wish would last for ever. I just wish they happened more often! Art is my life. And when you really think about it...Everything is art.
