“A New York minute is an instant. Or as Johnny Carson once said, it’s the interval between a Manhattan traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn. It appears to have originated in Texas around 1967. It is a reference to the frenzied and hectic pace of New Yorkers’ lives. A New Yorker does in an instant what a Texan would take a minute to do.”

Love that which you love, with all of your might. Because anything can change in a New York Minute. ANYTHING. In an instant. Sometimes you’re lucky. Sometimes you’re not. And today, we were lucky. Very lucky. Please, have good thoughts for my Gwendolyn.
