it's all I can think about. Two years ago I would have shuttered at the thought
of New York City, and I've always been a mountain girl but these strong streets
have stolen my heart. For some people, the city is an overwhelming, stressful & scary place,
but for me, I feel calm, safe, and energized by everything that is going on. It tells me 'hey, your troubles aren't that important, there's an entire world going on out there!"
1.) The way ice-cream trucks stop on broadway and stay for hours on end
2.) Seeing little boys fitted with glove & bas
eball bat getting off the subway on their own!
3.) The spring weather here right now.....it is truly perfect and I know we only have so much more of it to go.
4.) Hearing 6 languages in 6 minutes
5.) Falling asleep listening to honks and more honks and random city banter
6.) The feeling of being very close to people & very far away at the same time
7.) The idea that you can take a turkish bath, eat
on a farm, and see broadway shows all in the sane city.
8.) Art, and how it lives so strongly here.
10.) Being able to walk to church, the grocery store, any store, and basically anywhere you need to go.
now, we just need to get You & Ansel over here!
if you're in town, come & visit me!
oh, P.S. I got blogged on one of my favorite blogs last night, little miss Shiny Squirrel
