today started out on a very interesting note with the style360 fashion show on 18th street. i will spare you the details! i ventured back up to lincoln center to see the 100th anniversary showcase for women's wear daily, presenting a display of limited-edition pieces by eleven designers who have re-created iconic looks from the last hundred years of fashion. the exhibition offered a glimpse into the design process, including sketches, fabric samples, life-size ensemble cutouts, and the final creations themselves. some of the selected designer participants were adam, alexandre birman, doo.ri, jason wu, marchesa, prabal gurung, proenza schouler, and thakoon. from this point on, fashion was done for the day. i was in desperate need for some nature! i took a jog over to central park after taking a swing through co-op and found new places that i had yet to discover...one of those being the path along the reservoir (one of the most beautiful sites of the big apple). rabbit trail for a minute: for some reason, it feels like you are in a music video when you run in this city; it feels like you are in your own world, while so many lives pass by you. it exists as a way to retreat from people while in the midst of thousands of them. after a long run, i took a stroll back through the shady trees and found the perfect bench next to the canoeing pond to take a nap. i took off my ipod to soak in the sounds of different languages, animals, and sometimes a glimpse of silence. it was the perfect sleep in the midst of the following forecast: sunny. no chance of rain. high of seventy-four. i forced myself up after a while, as i could have stayed there forever, and took a slow tread back to the apartment just in time to get ready for the new york city ballet. me and terry enjoyed a patio street side dinner at rosa mexicana, ate the most delectable homemade guacamole, fantastic meals, laughed, and talked about the ins and outs of life. as the sun was setting, we walked over to lincoln center for the opening night of the ballet. it was absolutely breathtaking, graceful, and enchanting. i never wanted it to end. tomorrow is a new day!
