last night, emily and i went to see MOMIX perform at the joyce theater. if you ever have a chance to see them, GO. MOMIX is a troupe of modern dancers/illusionists and they are just phenomenal. i don't think i can really find the words to express this. i kept thinking "this can't get any better" and it always did. our seats were pretty close to the stage and yet there were so many times when i thought "how did they just do that?!". their use of their bodies/costumes/props was astounding. and they were smiling the entire performance, you could tell that they loved what they were doing.
as emily and i walked (partially) home from chelsea to the LES, we couldn't stop chattering about how incredible it was. and how fortunate we are to live here. it really is wonderful. every night, there are a gazillion brilliant things happening all around this city. anything and everything you would ever want is at your fingertips and it's always the best of. this month, i have tickets to five ballet performances (for ABT and NYCB) and it just makes me giddy. along with festivals, book readings, concerts, etc. delight!
and i feel really lucky that my friends want to explore just as much as i do.
