I haven’t written in a couple of days. Haven’t told you about the wonderful Infinity Hall in Norfolk yet. I will do that sometime later this week or next.
The days in Manhattan have been packed. I did a photoshoot on Tuesday morning, followed by ten hours at the Blue Note. Loading in, soundcheck and two shows. Was able to leave a few times, went to have a glass of wine with Stephen in the Village between shows for example, but was stuck there more or less from 14:00 until after midnight. Fell into an exhausted sleep at the hotel around 02:00.
Wednesday morning Jon and I walked fifty blocks to a coffee and breakfast place we like on the corner of 11th street. Afterwards I walked to Soho and met Joan Halifax Roshi who was visiting an artist friend of hers after being at a function at the United Nations the previous evening. A while later Roshi and were sitting on a little bench in front of Balthazar on Spring Street, sipping coffee and watching humanity pass by, running and walking this way and that way, while we were sitting still.
