Don't Let The Fickle Fingers Of Fate Dictate Your Time!
Naomi, I'm so happy my intermittent blogging has inspired you––because real time has become a real pain in the tuches for me.
The Tunnel's Too Wide For My Vision
When I returned from my vacation, it all hit me again. My job––which is about things that happen before real time, my leisure––which is my time, and real time––everyone else's time––came crashing into me. The simultaneously occurring circus of invitations, openings, events, and just plain mayhem that drives the hypertension of this city, my perpetual curiosity, and the illusory need to stay in the radar, doesn't allow much time for real contemplation. You can either blog your ass off––or rebel totally, and gaze at your needles (or your Jacob & Co. navel ring, right Tammy?). In the end however, is it elevating anyone's craft or consciousness?
Nevertheless, since I ain't turning down many invites or recommendations, I had to find a solution. New York This N' That––And The Other, is the sidebar portal that will preview and pertain to––the city circus; you can get your hypertension on! If you're traveling here––and many of you are travelers, international, as well as cross-country––it's my culturally hip radar screen, and a respite from the mainstream's myopia. For those who want the other––these are products and producers, who are about friends, rather than fame (but it can be about that too; there are some famously friendly folk out there). At last, I'll be free to blog in a manner that honors the subject (thanks for your patience, Monique).
Featured blog posts will be timelessly devoted to significant content. In my definition, this will mean content to elevate either your craft or your consciousness, with some of my raised eyebrow observations thrown in, to deflate the high and mightiness of that last sentence. I hope you'll find my new lens enjoyable and reactionary!
My boat neck dress is an A-line silhouette; the yarn is a linen blend; the pattern is Herringbone Lace, a favorite of mine, from A Treasury of Knitting Patterns. Knitted on # 5's, I'm half-way up the back piece now. I'm wearing it to dinner with Mr. K, at the Ebbitt Room in The Virginia Hotel, when we return to Cape May (I know, but we love it there) next week).
