Freezing streets...crowded corners...trees stark and unforgiving...light blocked by buildings...a million miles away from home...ducking into a cafe bathroom, the graffiti almost a cliche of what you'd expect in the city, but there it was...feeling softness anyway for the scrawled messages--following trails of words of my own to whatever destination they may choose for me...navigating NYC with a remembered map in my back pocket, the city I once wandered at will, now a foreign landscape. The girl wandering no longer a girl longer lost.

there's something quite delicious about nyc bathrooms and also, the sparkle of seeing the city with fresh eyes.

Great photo Delia and I know exactly what you mean about NYC - I lived there for eight years and things that happened then informed the rest of my life. Now I go visit and found so much has changed (and I have changed), but navigating it is still a treat.

No longer a girl. Nope. You are a powerfully talented woman!
Someday I want to go to NYC!
Will you meet me there?? ;)

It has been so long since I traveled NYC alone...
