Living in New York, it’s easy to get caught up in the Big Things (Why do I pay more in rent than the average American family for a 700 square foot apartment? How am I ever going to actually grow up in this city? Where the heck are all the baby pigeons?)
…and the Little Things (Is the dry cleaning place really going to close at 6:59 on the one day I needdd to pick up my best work blazer? Sir, I asked for dressing on the SIDE, please. GIRLFRIEND, do you REALLY think you need that cab more than me?), that you forget about the best part: the Middle Things.
Friends, family, food, laughter…and everything coming together for one miraculous second before the great city inevitably tears it apart.
