Assaults and Magazines

March 30, 2010

Having just arrived at the Miami airport, I have to say I feel sort of assaulted by America, in both good and bad ways. I forgot that things generally move more efficiently here, there isn’t the same tolerance for waiting on line. Oh yeah, and it’s also FREEZING. I think if I feel this way in the Miami airport I’m in trouble for New York.

CNN is on every TV and there are quite a lot of chain restaurants– Nathans, Au Bon Pain– that I’m not sure what to do with. The commercials on CNN remind me of a story that I produced for Cookie a few years ago, and the name Coconut Grove comes floating back. Researching that piece seems like so long ago.

Ahhh, and the magazines. I just stood at the newstand, looking at all of the English titles, the number of subjects covered. Awestruck. I want to read them all now, consume them at once, but I’m waiting–maybe my mom saved me Vogueand Bon Appetit, my dad the Economist.
