watching the snow blown by the wind against the windows , drifting down over taxis onBroadway . The driver for the taxi ride home was Russian and once he got to joking about drinking vodka and i couldn't quite get all he was saying and as we rolled across 14 th St. it felt like our own NY Christmas holiday moment
