The boy has landed in New York and by now should have been up the Empire State Building and currently tucked up in bed – meanwhile I have been checking his flight on Flight Aware and sleeping fitfully worrying about everything – more related to how I would deal with things rather than how he would. I am a bit surprised at how anxious this is making me, I was expecting to miss him but not to be feeling quite like this. I did some meditation yesterday evening and we went out to dinner (calamari, seared tuna nicoise the best ever frites and a bottle of wine) and watched the very good Grayson Perry programme on taste which should have been distractions.
Anyway, today they’ll be going to Ground Zero and performing at Washington Square Park’s Holly Plaza ; shopping at Macy’s and dinner at John’s Shanghai Chinese Restaurant followed by a trip across the Brooklyn Bridge. Then bed – think they’ll be exhausted !
