All day I am nursing a pulsating head.  What sort of world do we live in, when my old hood- the East Village (graffiti, tattoos, squatter and dog, Korean grocer, Indian street, Japanese Obon Festival, unnamed jazz bar, artists of every stripe- and don’t ever venture east of Avenue A) and Brooklyn, have become even more expensive to rent than, the Upper East Side?

Finding a flat in London was tough.  Finding an apartment in New York?  Much, much worse.

To ease the banging in my head, Bruno and I went for a walk.

When the time comes to leave our little village, I who have left cities (New York, Los Angeles, Irvine, Dana Point, Seattle, Phoenix, Tempe, Abilene, Houston, Singapore), will leave with some heaviness.

is too precious.
