With storms predicted for the northeast, I switched to an early morning flight that would have me home for lunch. The chaos of the newly constructed canopy, bent through a magnifier on the back of the shuttle, seemed like a fitting end to 48 hours on the road.

Big City Adventures

I am not a city guy. Never have been, don’t expect to ever be one. Small cities, sure – Athens is awesome, very manageable. And I can see ending up in a small town again, someday.

But New York City … erm, pass. And mostly I have. After spending many days there earlier in my life, it had been 14 years since my last visit to Manhattan. I did find some comfort while wandering with a visual intention, but the unfocused moments of transit still bother me.

Times Square and the Museum of Modern Art were my plan for the first day, then dinner with some old friends.
