Was about 20 minutes early to meet a friend for an early dinner at Thalia. Had walked for blocks anticipating a crisp glass of white wine. Ordered the Reisling. It was so perfect, so cold, so easy on the palate. Can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed a glass of wine that much.

Followed it up with splendid food, really good conversation and a walk in the vibrant Manhattan streets.

This is living in the moment.
