SoHo to the 800 Yard Dash

Last night we were still in SoHo.  Met our friends from Maitland who also happened to be in the City.  Met them for drinks at Broom Street Pub.  Lots of cocktails and stories.  Afterwards took my girlfriend to have tapas at Boqueria on Spring.  Sat at the bar and shared food with a girl couple who sat next to us.  My girlfriend couldn’t talk, voice gone, which was kind of funny.  Amazing food.

Up early, quick flight home through flawless skies.  Made it just in time to see my 11 year old run the mile in the big meet.  He came in third, to his shock and dismay, having been sure that he would be the fastest.  Competitive little guy; wonder where he gets it…  Waited for hours in the drizzley fall air, finally watched him come in fourth in the 800.  Picked up dinner on the way home at Whole Foods, kids to bed and now watching It’s a Wonderful Life.  And yes it is.

To close with a great quote from Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
