I love New York.

L.A. is cool. Don’t love it. Like it as more of a casual aquaintance you see and make small talk with from time to time. Chicago…Chicago and I are a bit estranged. We usually only see each other when I’m headed somewhere else. Boston’s an old friend; we go way back. Nashville is that fun relative that you don’t see often enough. And Boulder, well, I miss Boulder terribly.

But back to New York. I love it! It’s a clichĂ©, right? It’s those old tourism commercials from the 80′s with everyone singing “I love New York.” It’s just not like anywhere else. It’s syncopated.

It has a rhythm like no other place I’ve ever been:


Take a five minute break. Hit full screen. Slow down and take it in.

Thanks to Tim Sessler and all the amazing musicians involved in making this beautiful slowed down Saturday afternoon music possible.

(P.S. I’m going to be there in three weeks!)

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter
