last week i ran away to new york city, to stay with internet friends for two or three weeks. i met with emily tebbetts and her friend grace, we stayed in grace's beautiful apartment, drank tea, and i listened to their hometown stories. i also spent time sandy honig, rockie nolan, rebekah seok, and leslie kirchoff. i've been doing a lot of wandering around the city and going to meetings. there are so many people to watch. everything here is so strange and... full. here are a few simple photographs from my first week here. i'm moving in with sandy tonight. view the second part here.
