New York State of Mind

Just got back from a few days in NYC – saw lots of great shows, went to my favorite places and a few new ones, and just enjoyed the city. Saw a few good shows – Murder Ballad, Kinky Boots, and Matilda. None were earth-shattering, but they were all a fun night out at the theatre.

New York isn’t the easiest place for someone with some mobility issues (I walk down stairs at a snail’s pace!) but it’s always worth the struggle and pain to experience everything I love about it.

My attempts to photograph the Murder Ballad theatre failed, so these are the Matilda and Kinky Boots marquees – along with a quick shot of the beautiful set design before the show.

I did eat some healthy food, too (really!)

Dog at the WTC site, carriage and police horses. Love seeing contented working animals.

Crab is a big hit. Hopefully this one will take a bit to destroy!

Missed my dog terribly, and although he enjoyed his time at my parents’, I think he’s happy to be home! (And even happier with this new toy!)

I got sick at the end of my trip, so I’m not doing much today since I can’t exactly breathe right now. Looking forward to some relaxing dog walking when I am able to, I missed it so much! I did see a few guide and service dogs in New York, which made me happy.

Cassius and I will probably end up there next summer, after the Moebius Syndrome Conference in DC. I think I’ve been convinced to present about CCI/service dogs, just gotta find a local puppy raiser (with adorable puppy, of course) to come and be adorable with us!
