Bright Lights

I feel my heart bending toward the city of New York. Strange - I have always thought of myself as a country girl. I still am, but my visit to the Big Apple this past weekend was transformational, invigorating. I felt a kinship with the city, not only because many of my good friends now live there, but because the city breathes such possibility. You walk around feeling the potential of meeting intriguing, intellectually-stimulating people and experiencing new adventures. I've been feeling like a new city is in order for a long time. I don't know what the future holds for 2010 but the idea of NYC is definitely growing in my mind's desire.

  1. We had really nice weather (For January) today in NYC. It was a perfect day. Glad you enjoyed yourself!

    ps I have a giveaway on my blog. stop by if you can!

  2. Ah yes, the siren's call of NYC. I was lured there myself and lasted two years---it's a wonderful city but more easily enjoyed when you're not broke like I was!

    My take on it, after moving away? Fun to be a tourist, stressful to live there! But everyone should still do it once :)

  3. Glad you had a great weekend! The weather was gorgeous so you definitely picked the right time. My blog's all about being a born-and-raised New Yorker and there's really nothing like it. I hope you get to experience what it's like living in the city someday!


Leave a lovely bit of your own marginalia!
