It’s kinda cool to live in a place where I don’t have to travel far at all to have no idea what is for sale in my grocery store.
It’s also kind of cool to find a place in your city that you’ve been before but had no idea how to find again. This place was an especially interesting find as I visited this place in 2009 with my youth group. It was my second time in the city then and we were on a mission trip. And sometimes, especially when I’m in Queens, I feel like I’m near this place. So finally, randomly, running into it (in Queens no less) was like running into myself, before I knew the continuum of my life that would lead to living here and visiting this place. Where I would be- not to pass out tracks- but to take 2 exams for my New York state teaching license.
I also think it’s cool that the snow is melting. One of my favorite things about spring (which isn’t here yet but is taunting us from afar) is how the city comes alive as the temperatures rise. People are happier. And there are more performing artists and less bums on the train. There are tourists who are lost. And we can eat ice cream without being cold. I mean, what’s not to love?
And do you know what else I think is cool? The power of people + comedy to melt the heart and make life just a little more bearable.
See what I mean?
Guess what guys? Next week is March. 😀
