When you read this, I will be in New York for work. I used to live in the city many years ago and I’m looking forward to walking Manhattan once again.
I am originally from California and I moved to New York to get my MFA in fiction from Sarah Lawrence. I’ll never forget the moment when I came up out of the subway in Midtown, buildings all around and people rushing past me, and something inside just said ‘yep. This is my place.’ I love living in Vancouver, I love running in the forest, but I’m a city girl at heart.
And with that I will leave you with the words of Huey Lewis and the News:
New York, New York is everything they say
And no place that I’d rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
And all at a quarter to 3?
Until next week, adios!
