Paris Ain’t Got Nothin’ On New York…

…for sheer springtime magnificence! I have made no secret of it: I love, love, love, adore, venerate, worship this city. Yes, it has its priorities messed up, sometimes royally so, and yes, the real estate situation is going to prevent us from buying a property here, and yes, gentrification is slowly and corrosively eating away at my two home neighborhoods of El Barrio and Chinatown…but for sheer brilliant beauty, you would have a hard time beating out Union Square Park on an April afternoon with 72 degrees on the thermometer and a baby due in only a few months. We left the Union Square clinic, where I finally met Lisa the head nurse and where Dr. Peretta put a microphone against Ting’s abdomen, allowing us to hear Michael’s heartbeat. I am not going to get foolishly optimistic, but…all signs are good. Signs are good. Ting is happy and so am I.

And to top things off, I am going to a surprise birthday party tonight for Evan’s fiancee Lauren, and that means 2 great things: barbecue and margaritas. Yay!

Seeya later…
