Off to New York!
There is a sliver of me that never left New York....a portion of my spirit continues to roam through the subway stations, buying a pack of gum from the chubby Indian man who owns a newpaper stand, and then switching between work and school outfits.
I meet this piece of my former self every time Manhattan and I reunite. Like all great relationships, we pick up right where we left off, ignoring the corrosivity that usually comes with distance and time.
I think everyone remembers where they were or what they were doing when a new part of themselves started to evolve. In New York, I truly grew into a writer. I surrounded myself with other writers and basked in the ebb and flow of inspiration on a daily basis.
So, it's no surprise that the butterflies are flapping today, eager for what is ahead. I will be on the plane soon, ready for the reunion with one of my great loves!
Have a great weekend!!
When did you evolve into a new person?? What are your plans for the weekend?
