025_IMG_7868_025 small

A few days ago my sister Megan sent me her top ten
New York moments. In no particular order, here are mine.

{one}
The hilarious woman seated behind me at the Lives of the Saints.
She was blind but proclaimed she had the best view in the house.

{two}
The crispy fish tacos at El Presidente on West 24th.

{three}
The eight high school boys on a school trip, all of them
shopping for running shoes while I tried on fuchsia converse.
Contact sport meets Disney Land.

{four}
The Christmas morning look on Megan’s face
when she found the perfect grey dress at Macy’s.

{five}
Melinda, from my hotel, who saw me in the lobby
on my last night and wished me a good flight.

{six}
The crisp bright light and laughter on the High Line
the morning Meg and I had our photos taken.

{seven}
Helen Mirren and the cast of The Audience.

{eight}
A charming taxi driver from Jamaica.

{nine}
Talking with Jun about writing novels.

{ten}
Walking home in the rain {how quickly a place
becomes home} and the man who helped me cross the street.
