Gorgeous Moments Along East River; New York City, NY
December 29, 2021
Been spending time here in New York City, before heading to the Bahamas and the PCA coming up soon.  The whole gang will be there, so you guys can get fired up for some new editions of 'PokerRoad Radio'...Caribbean style.  In fact, the PCA was where Gav and I first hatched our idea for the first WSOP prop bet a few years back, fueled by many cocktails of course.  No promises, but the Caveman does get a little creative on the islands.  As well, I wouldn't mind making a deep run in that tournament, but that's a story for another blog...
On a more immediate note, I actually just walked back into my place here on the lower east side, well AlFX's place to be exact, after a great run along the East River.  I had one of those amazing episodes that we so seldom have in our lives while running today.  It was just an epiphanal moment of complete happiness.  Running along the river on the east side of New York, cranking out music from 'The Black Crowes' and 'Pretty Girls Make Graves', I was completely and utterly happy, enjoying the sun shining and remembering how much I loved living in NYC when I was here a few years back.  How often do we get those moments each year?  Once or twice...if we are lucky?  You know the ones I am talking about...where everything just seems alright.  The world is beautiful for just those few moments in space and there are no problems that can bring you down or that you can't overcome.  I found myself smiling like a freaking goon as I trekked along that path and just enjoying the moment.

Now, don't get me wrong, my life is a total disaster area, complete with yellow caution tape and, at times, actual sirens to ward others away.  Ha!  Even with all that madness swirling around though, if you can't stop and take in a moment like the one I had about an hour ago, you really just have no business in this life.  In many ways, those moments are the point of life sometimes.
So, just hanging here for another week or so.  Been going out with old friends and catching up with people, and I'm sure it'll be more of the same.  I'll try and drop in with another report or two, including the shenanigans we get into on New Year's...
Talk to you all soon...
