I need that new vacation where nothing that's spoken is known.

Another fringe festival, another symbolic victory lap in New York. We begin with Summer Streets and so we depart, only not yet. There is one more show to perform and we head out tomorrow.

Did not sleep very well last night, we could have used the AC. It has been cool the last few nights and in spite of the constant honking of horns and increasingly bizarre wailing of sirens, I preferred the fresh air moving across the apartment than feeling boxed in and blasted with freon.

That and like every other night this week, we got to bed late, and I knew I would need to get out early to make a run and be relaxed for costume load-out at 11 AM. Our final performance of Double Heart is at noon. Noon on a Saturday? Well, pre-sale is good, and besides, being the first show of the day means the stage lights haven't been on for hours and hours already.

I set my phone alarm, and as is always the case when I do that, woke up in fits and starts several times before it went off and finally just got up and turned it off.

Headed north today, up Lafayette to Park Avenue, under and through Grand Central Terminal and onto 51st Street. Yes, I could have gone further, I longed to reach the park, but not this time. We will return. The streets were full of bikes and runners and walkers and very small dogs on leashes.

Temperature: 67°
Distance: 6 miles
