I spent one of the loveliest days in the West Village, on Charles Street, enjoying the most delicious, ethereal even, day. Mary's Fish Camp served up some clams, mussels, sunchokes, and cauliflower. Isn't that such an appropriately-named sunny-day restaurant? It just conjures so many fond memories...most of which, have nothing at all to do with being trapped in a city of hot concrete and skyscrapers. After departing that delightful hideaway, I people-watched, sat on stoops, and meandered through the heart of the Village amongst kicking babies in strollers and toothy grins of happy canines out and about. Everyone seemed joyous. Grateful, really, for the opportunity to embrace another incredible day to be alive. Travis Tritt's voice was following me around, whispering:
"It's a great day to be alive,
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes.
There are some hard times in the neighborhood,
but why can't everyday be just this good?"
