On the plane back to New York. Was this trip a bit of an extravagance? Yes. Was it “worth it?” I’d say so.
Sunday October 23, 2016
Did it have a sufficient degree of abandon, decadence and “lost weekend”-ness? Surely. And is it time to get back to work? Absolutely. I want to get my videos done, so I can move on to the next phases of school. I’m a bit scared that I won’t be able to accomplish everything I want and need to do in school, so I have to be diligent.
I saw a man with interesting attire on the bus, in San Francisco. He wore a white satin-looking jacket emblazoned on the back with the phrase, “Love All, Trust Few, Do Wrong to No One.” In some ways, that sums up my attitude towards others. I most certainly TRY to live by the Golden Rule of treating others as I would like to be treated. I hope that I can continue that in the face of not always being treated respectfully or thoughtfully, at the least.
I arrived on time into Newark airport at around 3 pm, which means that I got home around 5 pm, after traveling through the baggage claim, air train to New Jersey Transit, and then waiting for a commuter train into Pennsylvania Station. I made a reservation at one of my favorite nicer restaurants in Chelsea, called Cookshop. After a nice dinner I walked home on the High Line and had every intention of going to bed early. That’s when my decadent spirit got back into me.
