"What's up, Anna. I just wanted to let you know that a girl I dated for a few months when I was 16 and living in VA has found me through this network. Seems the thing is spreading. Wicked! Where the fuck are you guys now?"

"Man, that's funny. I've taken up playing the harmonica (poorly, thus far) and, via a mental leap through Andy, thought, "I should really email Lauren. " What's shakin', man? How's life and love and work? I've…"

Jason Leahey replied to Mari Brown's discussion Best Dressed, Worst Dressed, Hot Mess
"In Cambodia, many women in the towns and, from what I can tell, almost all of the women in the countryside, wear pajamas all day. I'm right now looking at a kindly-looking, middle-aged woman in a top and bottom PJ set of Hershey chocolate brown…"

Mari Brown commented on Jason Leahey's blog post NYC from Siem Reap.
"a, you added a "blunts" tag. awesome. b, this paragraph brought me to my knees: You get in between worlds and you get that new vantage, get clear of the personal plagues that are site-specific, and with that distance see how quickly the…"

NYC from Siem Reap.

Okyay, I'm that person who sits in the tuk-tuk with Shannon and misses New York while she's pondering Laos. I'll save all of the things I miss for another time, but given my lady's post, I feel compelled to take the admittedly slacker move of posting an entry from my own blog here because it speaks to how being away from New York has inspired in me understandings 180 degrees from Shannon's. I wrote it on a trip home (home! home!!) after 9 months in the muck and stink and sun of Cambodia.…See More

Profile Information

What are you?
Ex-New Yorker
What is your relationship to New York?
Oh, man, I didn't even want to choose between 'Ex-New Yorker' and 'Current New Yorker.' Can't I be 'Temporarily (Maybe)-Out-of-New-York New Yorker?' Or can't I suddenly come upon a pot of gold or a Genius Grant and achieve that whole Life in Brooklyn-Life at a Farm duality? New York is so much of what is awesome about America and so much of what sucks too. And so I'm homeless.
