tonight i got homesick for chicago
i could picture exactly what sunday evenings look like now, and i wanted to be there so badly, walking into the apartment together from an afternoon of exploring to a chorus of cat hellos, preparing something to eat on the dining table that we finally own after nearly ten years of cohabitation.
but i also i got homesick for a time that doesn’t exist anymore, a time when after leaving brunch with my girlfriends or dinner with my sister, i would be heading home to warren street, to throw open the windows to spring time in new york. while i am glad to get to come back here so often for work, it also makes it hard to let go, to feel fully moved on, and this perfect spring weekend - that reminded me of so many of the best moments this city can offer - has made it all the more difficult.
what a life we had in new york. (what a life we have, will have in chicago.) i’m just ready for a new season.
