Unable to Catch My Breath at Carnegie Hall

It seems like a long time since I lived in New York sometimes, others it seems like just yesterday. Getting back to New York a few times this year, I’ve had a few chances to stumble into memories. I was surprised to have a cab let a colleague and I out across the street from […]
