Anthology magazine

Have you seen Anthology, the new magazine about lifestyle and homes? It's beautiful! And I'm very honored to have a story in the second issue, which is the one currently on the stands. I wrote about the charming Dumbo residence of Jacob Harris, JDub Records' COO, and prop stylist Randi Brookman Harris. You can get a sneak peak at my story and see Thayer Allyson Gowdy's gorgeous photography here (and above).

While I was visiting with the couple one morning back in October (Homebodies-style for once (!), because they live in NYC and it was possible), Randi walked me into their bedroom, where we were greeted by a window washer, Spider-Man-style, at work on the seventh-floor. His red bucket, fittingly, matched the Eames shell chair in the corner. So design!

Working the Thursdays gig

On Thursdays, I help a professor with her creative writing class at a New York college. It's quite fun -- I'm entertained all afternoon reading her students' fiction. (She's not a native English speaker, so I proofread for grammar and syntax.) I love reporting for duty, because not only is she funny and creative, and not only does she live in a charming Brooklyn brownstone, but she's also a fabulous cook who brings me treats while I'm working! How I wish every job had this kind of service. 

Actually, when I'm at WNYC, hosts sometimes prepare my coffee when I'm not even looking.
