FROM THE HOMELAND

Five things I am liking right now about living in NYC …

I could happily eat variations of most all my meals right here… I know that sounds pathetic and in bad taste, but hey, at least I am being honest… You could lose the jello cubes though...

1. Meditating in the morning at Russell Simmons’ place (a 7-minute brisk—warm or wet —walk from my place) …

2) Riding the subway straight up into the heart of Manhattan. Clean, air conditioned in the summer, warm in the winter, always bizarrely entertaining…

3) Salad bars on every corner of every street (a bit of an exaggeration but not by much)… Somehow tastes far better than if I pile up the exact same stuff at home…

4) A million yellow cabs in NYC… You can’t find a cab in SF or LA… and there are scant few in DC… but NYC? They OWN the streets…

5) As a transplanted SFer I was startled at first at the arrogance of NYers… Now, I have become one… Kinda… This place is SO SO SO NYCENTRIC…

Okay that’s it for now… Scads more things but another time…

Tomorrow evening I head out West with the DLF.TV video team to document meditation in prison where lots of inmates, staff, doctors, administrators, and the chaplain are all meditating…

Will report in then… adieu… Bobby
