Indigo Workshop in Brooklyn

The scenery is quite different here in New York. Stuck on the sweltering heat grid of Manhattan with millions of stressed out overheating New Yorkers.

I miss the mountains and the dogs and Hiro and a regular schedule of weeding the garden and feeding the silkworms. I suppose there is a kind of regular schedule manifesting itself the past three weeks….waking up and wondering which cool cafe to have my morning shot of caffeine at and which cool deli to have my lunch at and which cool place to have dinner at. After dinner the dilemma where to go for the best locally brewed beer here in the hyper hipster epi-center of the universe Williamsburg/Greenpoint  Brooklyn.

It is hard to admit to actually loving it here. The grass and mountains are pretty green on my side of the fence. New York is still pretty seductive even in the heat.

  1. I cannot believe it, less than 2 months ago I was in NYC with my youngest, renting a flat not far from where you are having your workshop! I would have loved to take part in it.

  3. ha. i'm a "down on the farm" girl myself but will confess there are three cities in the whirled that call seductively. New York is one, but San Francisco and New Orleans sing loudest to me.

    1. I think New York is calling to me…"Leave…leave..leave…." ( I am willing to listen!)

  9. Hi Ted,
    I was here for three weeks. I go back to Japan on Wednesday. I've been carrying around the bag you made for me. Some good reviews! No Green Card. Helpful spectator status. Hope all is well on your side. Tuna was delicious. Bryan
