On Writing and Gratitude

THIS HAS BEEN A GOOD WEEK.

A: I've written several thousand words. Here's just one excerpt from the murder mystery I'm working. The working title is SEDUCTION AT DAYBREAK.


B: I got to meet a favorite author, DON WINSLOW, at Warwick's Bookstore, and listen to his methods and stories, while receiving great advice and solid encouragement. Tammy and I really enjoyed ourselves. Here's a picture and links to his latest novel, THE FORCE (it's Fn Awesome).

C: I recorded a fun podcast with my PIC & WE, Tammy. It will air shortly. It's a show about DESIGN and we're talking with our good friend and client, LINDSAY BROWN of The Brown Studio.

D: I reached some new goals in my workout; gained some pounds on the rack, increased some reps in my ab work, and cranked several more miles on the bike this week.

E: Plus, I've had lots of laughs, tons of great conversations and deepening love with my girl. Read: Best Part Of The Week.

I can say that I am TRULY blessed. I am GRATEFUL.

And the more I come from a place of gratitude and simply don't welcome negative energy of the past, or ignore friends who won't play fair, or disregard people who don't honor their word, or if I find a lack of integrity in people/businesses/situations ... well, the better off I am without such.

I am FOCUSING ON THE POSITIVE. I am CLEARING OUT THE NEGATIVE. I am WELCOMING THE ENCOURAGING. I am FERTILIZING GROWTH. I am TURNING A DEAF EAR TO THE BULLSHIT. I am EMBRACING THE LOVE.

And it is GOOD.

Have a great Wednesday. Smile at a stranger. Hug someone who is sad. Call an old friend. Writer a parent. Love your neighbor.

Cheers,

I LEAVE YOU WITH MY FAVORITE INSTAGRAM POST OF THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS:

Thank you, Tammy, for sharing this quote and your life with me.

SHOW 10: FLASHBACK FRIDAY: MANHATTAN STYLE

On today's Dave + Tammy Tour Podcast, it's a FLASHBACK FRIDAY, as we walk down memory lane recalling our time spent in Manhattan.

As you must know by now, Tammy & I love good food, splashy cocktails, exceptional design and any sort of travel.

We also enjoy supporting local businesses, and in today's show you get to visit as we revisit many of our favorite stomping grounds. Places for food like:

Jake's  Masseria  Pepolino  Laduree  Il Baretto  Cocette  Laughing Man

There are also so many great cosmopolitan adventures to enjoy like:

The Whitney - Cooper Hewitt - The Highline - Madison Square Park

If you've never been to New York City, or are thinking about visiting--like our friends Eric & Summer Gilmer (dasMOD), then you'll definitely want to catch today's show in order to find some of the places tucked away and off the beaten path, where you can...

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL

There's something for everyone in New York, one of the greatest cities in America!
