Sarah - my closest friend in the city is leaving for her hometown in North Carolina tomorrow. It was a joy to spend the last couple of days together, eating sushi at Fort Greene and strolling around tipsy on red wine without a direction but a camera in our hands, and thereby having the best of times.
I always get the same feeling when the end of summer is creeping up. The longing back for the carelessness of summer, the expectation coming with a new school year (although this will be my first year without school). People going away or coming back and the feeling that the summer, maybe without your knowing, has transformed you somehow.
