I went into the city on Sunday and had breakfast in Penn Station before taking a subway to Brooklyn. Tomorrow there will be more about that.

Later that day, on the subway back to Manhattan, I sat opposite this group of friends happily chatting with each other, not a cell phone in sight.

I’ve started (finally) getting my library books through the Overdrive app. This means that there is room in my bag for my small Moleskine and some pens. Couple that with the fact that I won’t take iPat out while I’m on a subway and voilĂ !:
