NORTH FORK AND THE INNER CHILD

James Andrew - the North Fork

James Andrew – the North Fork

There is so much to love about North Fork, and a simple bike ride sure can bring back some carefree childhood days. It’s actually important I think to stay in touch with that; a place where anything is possible, where we aren’t really caught up in the fear of making mistakes, (and often those mistakes lead to new and wonderful discoveries), in short, a place where imagination and fantasy are the rule of the day. I say, don’t grow up. Just be Mr. or Miss Super-Fabulous. Don’t be ashamed to really shine. Pursue those big dreams and crazy fantasies. And, you know, I walk my talk here on WIJW. I love dressing up with friends, wearing Tom Ford, and feeling like a star — when those thoughts, feelings, and a good dose of action are in play, we’re well on the way to making things happen. Let’s bring a little of that childhood excitement into everything that we do!

How do you celebrate your inner child?

Biking through the North Fork, I’m sporting a Tom Ford era Gucci navy cotton pique jacket, white linen with pale blue embroidered edged pocket square by G. Inglese, Michael Bastian red and white striped cotton seersucker hoody, Club Monaco madras plaid shorts, Adidas Stan Smith tennis shoes, vintage Rolex, Gucci sunglasses, and Jo Malone 154 Cologne.

    James,

    Words of a genius! I adore riding my bike- fat tires and all, to the probable consternation of the racers- who are always in such a hurry to get wherever it is they think they’re going LOL! I know of several who have been very seriously injured- including one who crashed his $17,000 dollar bike and now has a broken neck…

    In our childhood, we are impressionable, and that must be what keeps us curious and interested.

    Love these summer North Fork posts. Will be in Water Mill soon…

  4. This is kinda cute! Adam and I got a “tandem bicycle” in 1982! We rode that bicycle 14,000 miles! (not all at once)! But what fun we had! over maybe 15 years! (we got another one!)

    Once we rode our bicycle from our house in Pasadena (on the Arroyo) to Santa Monica to the “Beach Club” for lunch!! And then we rode it back to Pasadena the same day! 65 miles that day!

    what fun!!!
    I looked down at my legs in the bathtub and thought….(whose legs are these? They were so fit!!!)

    Penelope,

    Loved your comment!
    I noticed my legs getting better too- although the knees are sore!

    My Dear Michael Hampton ,

    “They call me superman…”

    Ha ha – Yes exactly

    I adore the North Fork – but I think Rhinebeck would suit us better!

    Love

    My Dear Karena,

    Anything that brings us back to our child hood should be indulged often!

    Thank You
