This city is amazingly easy to navigate; I’ve been in Manhattan since Sunday and I feel comfortable. It’s a comfortable city. It’s warm and secure like that hoody I bought seconds out of the subway in Chinatown. There’s a lot I enjoy about it apart from Carrboro, but there’s also a lot of good similarities. The walking for instance. I think the car-for-ever-person mentality of America is great for the oil and auto industry, but is killing the environment. I’ve considered moving here — this trip was a bit of a trial run to see if it is any sort of future possibility. I’ve had a good time, but I’m not ready to pack my bags yet. The worlds a big place, but not so big that I wouldn’t see a life drawing student. Everywhere I go: Someone has seen me naked.
