DAY 30 - The Last Day in NY
6-22-2008 5:45pm - Sitting inside Sugar Sweet Sunshine Bakery
We've been walking around hitting galleries all day. We started in Soho, made our way to the Bowery Art Museum and are now sitting in a bakery/coffee shop on the Lower East Side. I have an urge to shave a mohawk on my head and paint until the sun comes up. That might have something to do with the caffeine latte I just downed though. Rain drips from the awning as it pours outside the window I sit next to. The sun shines through though and somewhere out there there's a rainbow arcing over the city. NYC makes me long for Buenos Aires, another huge city. So alive. So much input. When we leave tomorrow, I know a part of me will be left behind, waiting for my return, waiting for my mind to dance in the rain here once again, just like San Francisco...
Ironically the t-shirt I wore this day says
"Hi, How Are You?"
Sidenote to Day 30:
When I woke up the morning of Day 30 I had no idea a close friend would cross my path. My friend Tony from San Diego just happened to be in NY visiting his sister, and of all places we met up in Times Square (my first time there). It was an awesome thing to have been on the road for over a month and randomly meet up with a familiar face whose history stems from thousands of miles away. When Annie snapped the picture I pumped my fist in the air. I felt like I had conquered something. I don't know exactly what but I know we won.
