I finally figured out how to post from my droid! That makes me very happy.
Well, today has been the most wonderful adventure. They are de-icing the plane I am on as we speak so this will be brief. It is snowing in NYC and has been all day. As we approached JFK airport, I saw ocean waves lappingva snow-covered beach. That was one of the most beautiful, surreal scenes I've ever witnessed. I am so grateful for that image because frankly, if I lived here, I don't think I'd be hanging out at the beach to see it!
I want to tell you about our adventure in NYC. I had the thought yesterday that we should just hop in a cab and head either into NYC or Brooklyn. I mean, 7 hours is a long time to sit anywhere. So, my mom called a couple of old friends when I landed, but it didn't work out. Little did I know Joe was doing the same thing. So, turns out, one of his friends, none other than the sales legend Ken Glickman took a cab out to the airport to meet us! No sooner do we meet up with Ken and Joe calls another friend, Victorias Secret video producer Jeffrey Madoff. So, we catch a cab into the city, and before you realize it, we are in midtown Manhattan at Madoff Studios! Don't worry, no victorias secret models.
We toured the studios, watched a few of Jeff's latest projects, shot a couple of videos, then went out to dinner. We had a heartfelt conversation over dinner brainstorming ways to raise the money for the docs. Some lightbulbs went on for Joe immediately, and all three men contributed some key ideas. Stay tuned for more info.
In the meantime, the snow is falling faster than they can de-ice, so we are stuck here on the tarmack... literally snowed in. Looks like I'm not done with NYC just yet... or maybe its. Not done with me?
