Yesterday I embarked on a mission to drive from Chicago to Brooklyn in one day.  I left at 10am CST and arrived at 1:30am EST.  That is a load of driving, especially solo.  So today I decided to take it easy and explore a little of Brooklyn.  I joined my sister at the Park Slope Coop and bought groceries for tonight’s feast with Seth Mooney.   Walked around Carrol Gardens and then back to my sister’s apartment to hide from the thunderstorms. The sun decided to come out, so I snuck onto the fire escape and enjoyed an espresso and the beautiful view of Brooklyn gardens.  All in all, a much needed laid back day.
