At daybreak this past Monday, I received a telephone call from my friend Liz in Stockholm, Sweden. She was with friends in her quaint home and mentioned her parents were visiting New York City in May. “Could you meet up with them for lunch or hot chocolate?” she asked.
“Of course,” I replied and looked at the time. “Is this your parents’ first trip to New York?”
“Yes,” Liz said, “And I’m sorry to call you so early.”
“I was thinking of walking this morning anyway, so I’m glad you telephoned.” I said, “And I have the perfect place to take your parents.”
We chatted for a couple more minutes and scheduled to talk later during the week.
I walked four miles in Central Park. Upon returning home, I made breakfast and worked on my manuscript.
By eleven o’clock that morning, I was at the Science, Industry and Business Library on Madison Avenue and 34th Street. Then around two o’clock in the afternoon, I decided to take a break from research and writing and headed to Michel Cluizel at 199 Madison Avenue (Corner of 35th Street, New York, NY 10036) for a lovely cup of hot chocolate.
