“One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years” – Thomas Wolfe
When lying on the beach in Aruba, I told Derek, “ Honey, I just have a sudden craving for Paris Laduree macaroons’ delicate pistachio filling.”
Derek smiled, “ Why don’t we stop by Laduree in New York ?”
Suddenly I found myself walking on Fifth Ave, on the same path with Laduree’s fans like Carrie Bradshaw and Blair Waldorf to our favorite patisserie on Madison Ave.
And I can sit in Central Park for hours enjoying my macaroons and the pleasant melody of saxophone from far away!
“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible
