it seems like every year a cali pal moves back to the home state. niroshi has been in nyc for over a decade. that's some major time. i remember visiting her in her apartment that literally was next to the F line. it was like soooo new york. i remember calling her when 9/11 happened and getting a busy signal. i'll always remember our chance encounters where she lived in the epicenter of billyburg. i will sorely miss my dear friend. it makes me think how long i'll be in new york. only time will tell i suppose.
