1 degree folks. What IS this?
We have a nice long weekend ahead of us and where else would we go in the dead of winter but the beach? I would like to say that we're going somewhere warm and we're packing our bathing suits but not quite. We're leaving Manhattan and heading east to the Hamptons. It will be a weekend of sitting in front of the fireplace and drinking Malbec, tooling around the house in wool socks and snuggling on the couch. We both have a lot of work to do but the change of scenery will do us well and likely make us very productive.
One thing is for sure, I will be taking photos. I love driving to the beach when there's no one there, when there is snow mixed with sand and the force of the wind is pushing the waves further and higher. We sit in the car and just stare out at it. It's the one place where I don't feel rushed. I can rarely sit still but the beach in winter hypnotizes me.
I cannot wait.

Today's soundtrack is an oldie but goodie. We're going to see Steve Winwood tonight in Manhattan. I've never seen D so excited about a concert...

And, of course, here in New York we are thankful that everyone who was on that plane yesterday is safe and now warm.
