Welcome back to my life! I've missed you terribly and can't wait to spend so much time with you, being warmed and freckled by your glow. And as I sit on my couch and snack on my breakfast of pre-cut watermelon- such a summer fruit itself- I can't help thinking forward to all the fun we will have in the coming months.
Tonight is a very big night for me. I have a friend coming into town for a concert and not just any concert but the very last LCD Soundsystem concert ever. Which is bittersweet in more ways than one for me as James Murphy's songs often reflect on his love-hate relationship with New York, much in a way I can relate to on a musical level. I'm definitely not saying this in the profound sort of way that I imagine it in my head but given how things have been lately with certain nameless events in the near future... well, I am dressing to the nines in all black and there will definitely be tears with New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down (though never when Kermit sings it). It's one of those experiences I can honestly say happens only in New York and if this is the beginning of my goodbye to this city then this is the perfect start to my love letter.
And that's all I have to say about that. But until then, I'm reflecting, hydrating and going out to hang out in the sun until tonight.
