Like most travelers, I make time for quiet time, such as last Friday; I sat in a comfortable grey chair at Dr Smood (485 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10017) with a Jade Green tea, Avocado Toast, and my book: North Pole by Michael Bravo.
Dr Smood is an organic café with stillness, along with a friendly staff, and tasty food. Whenever I am not meeting friends for lunch, I find an unengaged table and order coffee or tea with pen and paper in hand to write. Its essence is similar to the words by Michael Bravo, “The Pole Star is different from all other stars because it is, relatively speaking, fixed, whereas all other stars appear to rotate around the Pole Star in the course of a night.”
And thus, I set foot into a neighborhood star, Dr Smood for the pleasure of good food, good company, and the mystery of a traveler.
