Daily Life New York Photos

Time in between

Hello from a beautiful mountain village in South Korea! Until I can tell you more about where I am, I wanted to take time to remember the time in between. So here are some photos of New York, in its ever-transient yet beautiful spring time.

I never quite learned how to properly say my goodbyes, but know that some friendships simply withstand time and distance. It’s another reason to write letters and take trips. I am sure our paths will cross again–here, there, or somewhere unexpected!

    i’ve never really felt like New York is a place i should visit, but you make it seem like a little paradise and actually make my wish to walk around there one day a little bigger :) it looks so .. normal. and that might sound a bit weird, but i’m glad that even in (what in my head is) the city of everything exaggerated and filmset-ish etc there’s so much normal live to find. i love the flower thingies in the girls’ hair, in the park!
    and i think your graduation family picture is really cute.

    as for saying goodbye… i hardly say goodbye too, simply because it’s a sad thing to do and indeed – if it’s a real friendship it’ll survive the distance. for me it’s always been inside of Europe, which really makes it easy to visit :) (okay, except for my American/South African/Asian friends), but i can imagine it’s much harder for you. but still, letters and trips are good things. :)

    i hope you’re enjoying Korea! and i’m obviously curious about what you’re doing.
    have a good week!

      Thank you for leaving me a lovely comment here, Marlou. I am slowly feeling settled enough to write some letters “home.” :) And yes, more about Korea soon!

      Thanks so true, Amelia. It’s always a “See You Later,” isn’t it?

    I think I regret a bit not having had the time to meet you while you were in New York, but I’m sure one day we’ll get to see each other! Your South Korea pics from twitter seem truly lovely and /summer/ and please send some of that sunshine this way. I’m looking forward to reading more about what you’ve been up to and, again, congratulations on graduating. Yay!! xx
