New York- where part of my heart resides

 “I love New York, even though it isn’t mine, the way something has to be, a tree or a street or a house, something, anyway, that belongs to me because I belong to it.”

-Truman Capote

New York. It belongs to me because I belong to it...no matter how far away I am or how long it’s been since I resided at a Manhattan address, NY is mine and it has my heart. ❤️

And what a great feeling it is, to have a home on the other side of the ocean. A place to return to every so often when your current home begins to numb you. 🙏🏻

I needed a break. Or inspiration. Or miles of grey sidewalks and imposing skyscrapers, sleepless nights and infinite lights. I needed my favorite city full of memories and promise.

New York, thanks for the laughs (and the tears). I’ll see you soon. 🗽
