September evening

It was cool for the first time, last night. We took our supper up there - a chicken, a salad, some bread, and ate it with the earlier sunset, and a breeze that meant business, off the water. We wore sweaters.

Downtown Brooklyn behind us in the east, and later, as it grew dark, heavy Venus in the west.


  1. You have a way of setting the mood with just a few words - I love your writing!

  2. I hope the cat helped with the chicken. Informants need to keep up their strenght for a long exile to Russia :)

  3. Marie, your book arrived on my doorstep yesterday and it is BEAUTIFUL! I love it - your writing is wonderfully clear and descriptive and the photos are stunning - you and the Frenchman really capture the soul of NYC. I read your blog every morning and have also enjoyed my armchair travel through Kruger Park with you and Vince. I lived in Japan for several years and had a kitchen just about as small as yours so can relate to preparing meals in a tiny space. But I don't think our meals were as elegant as yours! Thank you for engaging us in your life in NYC and for the great book! Judy, Boston, MA.

  4. How delightful! This is my idea of living well:-)
