Well, no thunderstorms this trip (though I understood this to be one of New York’s thunderstormiest summers in living memory — perhaps its thunderstorm quota is depleted).

But I did hear the incredible SCREEEE of cicadas, and I ate a Knish Nosh knish, two New York summer attractions to which I had overlooked looking forward. And I don’t have the words to describe the trippy pleasure of watching one’s kids playing in one’s own childhood playground.

Everyone’s your friend in New York City

The kids and I are off to New York in a few hours. I’m looking forward to:

  • Italian ices;
  • Fireflies;
  • A summer thunderstorm;
  • Warm ocean water; and of course
  • My mom, dad, and sister

…none of which are to be had here in Northern California. My kids are looking forward to Dino-Walk and Dylan’s Candy Bar.
