I’ll be back on my beat in Little Italy by the 1st of December. I plan to be at Nico’s in Little Italy for karaoke the first Saturday night in December which is the 6th of December. I’ve already started doing my breathing and stretching exercises again every morning. I’ll sing The Doors.
But I might get lucky. I might get some fun money by this Friday. It all depends on the U.S. Postal Service. The funny thing is, is that if I sign up for direct deposit for the fun money that I might get Friday, the money wouldn’t be deposited in my account until the 1st of December.
If I do get some fun money this week, I’ll be back at Armand’s in Little Italy, a 15-minute walk away from my apartment building, sitting on a stool at the bar next to the window that looks out on Liberty Avenue, shooting the breeze and sipping my beer and thinking deep thoughts about life, death and writing.
When I’m away from Little Italy for too long I feel that life is passing me by. I find I have less to blog about. And there is always the danger that I’ll suffer a bout of writer’s block.
I’m ready to get back to my regular beat in Little Italy.
