I know!! That book was so wonderful! One thing that made me sort of sad about it was that we can never visit that New York City. Sure, of course the city is still there and still amazing and filled with so many special parts and places; diamonds in the rough can always be found... but jeez, the New York of Patti's book is looooong gone. I guess we've traded the grit & danger for gentrification & safer . . .
i just wish i could liberate myself from my belongings like she did time and time again. i also wish that i could paint pictures with my words as well as patti does. it felt like you were living in this moment with her and him and never wanted it to end.
