Last week while I was in New York I was wandering around and found myself in Washington Square Park. While I was there I saw this quote chalked into the ground in front of the arch. I love Joan Didion and I was so happy to see this sprawled on the ground in front of me.
I was in love with New York.
I do not mean ‘love’ in any colloquial way,
I mean that I was in love with the city,
the way you love the first person who ever touches
you and you never love anyone
quite that way again.
– Joan Didion
