WEEK 18 - 17/11/11 - HOMESICKNESS

“It is necessary to find one's own way in New York. New York City is not hospitable. She is very big and she has no heart. She is not charming. She is not sympathetic. She is rushed and noisy and unkempt, a hard, ambitious, irresolute place, not very lively, and never gay. When she glitters she is very, very bright, and when she does not glitter she is dirty. New York does nothing for those of us who are inclined to love her except implant in our hearts a homesickness that baffles us until we go away from her, and then we realize why we are restless. At home or away, we are homesick for New York not because New York used to be better and not because she used to be worse but because the city holds us and we don't know why.”
- Maeve Brennan
caos and barriers, but once you conquer them and find your own way, what once was a limitation will now become a bond.
the harsh appearance makes us hold back a little, but it is that glimmer that draws us to what lies within. and once we crawl through the 'fish pod' we can never get out.
