It’s undeniable that this year is like none other in our lifetime. The differences are even more palatable as the holiday season rolls in. Fifth Avenue is usually packed with revelers and this week I found Rockefeller center to be only sparsely attended.
Saks Fifth Avenue felt like a Summer Tuesday morning– meaning it was essentially void of customers. The block of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral was only occupied by me, multiple security guards, and a few security dogs. If ever there was a year to take stock, this would be the one.
Even as this year has provided horrible suffering and insurmountable obstacles, I have always held to the philosophy that any opportunity to celebrate should be embraced. Some of the most special moments of celebration are quiet and intimate. It is an opportune time to be more thoughtful, more caring, and giving.
Remember, the Chanel sale
starts this week. You can get all the details in this post
. I just added more pictures and will continue to add more. I can’t share contacts but you can search through past posts or use the general department store contacts that I frequently mention.
Stay tuned. Until next time… same time, same place?
