St Pancakes Day

What’s your name?  I ask the whole foods worker (who passes me a free shot of mango lassi)

LAAV. NICE TO MEET YOU. (THICK HINDI ACCENT).

How do you spell it? I say.

L-O-V-E.

Really? I crack up. So does he.

MY REAL NAME IS PANKAJ. IT MEANS “LOTUS”.

Oh, that’s nice.

BUT PEOPLE GET IT WRONG. THEY CALL ME PANCAKE.

Love, it is.

Top 3 FREE places to read and write!

cartoon-writerToday was incredible for discovering new spots in downtown Manhattan.

1. Barnes and Noble Tribeca: I live here. Get a membership card, you save tons on coffee/tea, even if you don’t buy books. Though you should. Buy books, that is.

2. New York Public Library: Shame on me for being 3 years late. Great children’s book section. Big windows. 2nd floor screams productivity. Fresh orange decor keeps you awake unlike some libraries.

3. Poets House: Gorgeous, hidden spot facing the water. Lots of light. Go here if you want true silence. Don’t wear clunky boots: it’ll echo.

Love and encouragement,
