a lunch so close to IFC has to be followed by a peek in J.Crew - and it did not disappoint - what is disappointing is that I bought that jacket in a brighter pink version last season, and now I like this one even better
On this lazy day of summer I read an article about Winona Ryder in New York Magazine, and immediately after re-watched Reality Bites, a movie directed by Ben Stiller in 1994 about twenty-something Gen Xers and their first world problems. It's made me nostalgic for the year I was 26, without much of a worry at all, going to work every day, walking to the 72nd Street subway station on cold sunny winter days, convinced that life was never going to be as perfect as right there in my very own footsteps on top of New York city pavement.
Thankfully I have had that thought again quite a few times. Standing on a rock halfway between the Gornergrat and the Riffelberg in Zermatt, overlooking the glacier of the Monta Rosa; or driving down from the Peak in my red Mini on a really clear Hong Kong day, catching the first glimpse of the city below. Come to think of it, this kind of exhilaration often follows confrontation with overwhelming scenic or urban beauty. Maybe it's not time that heals all wounds, maybe it's a room with a view.
