Super-duper sushi…NYC–

FullSizeRender  IMG_1105 IMG_1103IMG_1108BAM!  It’s sushi time at Sushi Seki on First Avenue and 62nd Street in Manhattan, New York City. . .jaaa!!  This is my personal favorite sushi joint in all of NYC because it is rustic, low-key, open late, and full of extremely delicious sushi creations from a sushi master, Seki-san.  Seki is not as sleek as Yasuda or Nakazawa. . .not as hushed as Ichimura at Brushstroke. . .and not as over-the-top as Gari or Jewel Bako.  Seki is subtle and bold at the same time. . .you will never have better sushi anywhere. . .his rice is substantial but understated. . .and the sake list is reasonable and full of delicious options for washing down your uni, yellowtail, toro, eel, snapper, whitefish, and his famous spicy scallop hand roll. . .mmmm, aaaahh!  I love gobbling at Sushi Seki (omakase please!!), and you will too if you ever find yourself on the upper east side of Manhattan lookin’ for world-class raw fish to jam into yer gullet.

I send you sublime vibes from Sushi Seki. . .feel them. . .you don’t need no others.

Be grateful…and breathe–

DSCN1412 DSCN1403 DSCN1401 DSCN1395Just hangin’ here in Lhasa, Tibet feeling grateful for the opportunity to visit this sweet town. . .and breathing in the air and good vibes. . .mmmm, aaaaahh!  Lots of folks are thinkin’ real hard about stuff. . .workin’ real hard at stayin’ “busy”. . .and really all that we have to do is flow with the goodness around us, be nice to all people, and send out positive life-affirming energy.  So much of busy-ness is arbitrary and for naught–resist as much of it as you possibly can.

I send you simple, natural, in-the-moment vibes. . .feel them. . .they are good for you.
