Brought in the New Year at home on West 47th Street in Midtown drinking orange spice tea. From blocks away at midnight came the primal roar of the crowd in Times Square as the ball dropped. The glass walls of skyscrapers were illuminated with reflected fireworks and a great whoop and cheering came from tenement rooftops all around.

The merriment subsided and for hours people made their way home through the
slush-clogged streets of a city still digging out from under a snow storm. Glad to be home and warm.
Here's to a creative and prosperous 2011 filled with hot drinks and new stories!
