Syracuse and in New York City, two places which I’d once lived, I stayed in hotels. I played tour guide with nostalgic wisdom instead of current knowledge. I voluntarily spent more time in Midtown Manhattan than I otherwise would have, noticing sights I used to rush past without a second glance—the New York Public Library, the International Center of Photography, The Edison Hotel.
And yet, I realize it’s not entirely this beautiful city’s fault. The month began so well, but it was last weekend that truly proved it to me--what with a successful surprise birthday party, a friendly Cinema en Plein Air picnic, and an unexpected phone call from home. When I take a deep breath and enjoy it, life in Paris is more full than I ever could have imagined. Thank god for taking chances.your Bon Voyage party in New York and falling more and more in love on each stroll through your new Parisian neighborhood just encourages the articulation of feeling.
a sea of happy imperfections though. That's probably why I jumped at the opportunity to attend the Media Evolution conference. From tonight on, I'll be spending my week getting reinvigorated with inspiration in Malmö, Sweden. I'm excited to share my experience with you when I get back.
