Photo by myself outside Macy's department store, at 34th and 6th Avenue.
The lights are out already at Macy's, draped in the form of a huge Christmas Tree. Outside, pedicabs line up, waiting for fares.
There were parties everywhere in the city after the election results came in Tuesday, around 11pm. People in Fort Greene, Brooklyn danced in the streets in their nightgowns. Firecrackers were set off in Park Slope.
Mark had fallen asleep by then, and I watched the wrap up from the sofa with our puppy and cat.
Life went on as usual Wednesday. The subway was slow going in the morning. We had a little rain. My coworkers sauntered in at various times and we all sat down to work furiously.
It was the same as it ever was, only different.
