Dorky

March 16, 2008

Sometime the city feels small. A few minutes of walking and we were on the Upper West Side, just like that. Why don’t I walk across the park here more often? Everything was just the same, families spending time together on play grounds, runners stretching on benches, Kevin Bacon walking his dog. I could still be back on 5th Avenue walking south, but I wasn’t, and I felt a world away and yet not. I’m rambling.
When you talk about these neighborhoods, they seem so far away and apart. They have different personalities, a different feel to them. An expanse of green, and actually a body of water separates them. When I’m home, on the Upper East Side, I feel far away. But then as I walk across at the top of the reservoir, I hear myself exclaim as we reach the West Side, “And just like that, we’re here!” But I don’t say it out loud, I keep it to myself, it feels dorky. Sometimes my excitement at discovering things here, at falling in love with little pieces of the city feels that way, but hey I’m a dork. The most exciting discovery yesterday was crocuses, just about to bloom. Spring is on the way and I can’t wait to discover it all over again here in New York.
