SHARING THE LOVE ON ST. VALENTINE’S DAY.

36 Comments

My time in this crazy, wonderful city is drawing to a close. It’s a time of melancholy, to know that I am saying goodbye to New York (which has been so good to me) just as New York is getting ready to say hello to Spring.

Hyacinths.

I came halfway around the world, to spend six weeks in a place where I knew no one, other than by their screen monikers.

I will fly home on Thursday with memories of real-life friends. Thankyou, all of you, for sharing with me your city and some of your lives. I love you all. And I love this place you call “home.”

Not like me to be soppy, so I’ll leave with a quote from Big Arnie:

“Hasta la vista, baby. I’ll be back!”

  3. Aj shame man! So sorry you are leaving NYC just before spring. If it’s any consolation, it would seem your winter there was one that will go down in the fire-side stories for generations…

    We’ll see you very soon! Give the kitty a kiss for us! And to quote Arnie a little further, “No problemo!” (Don Estorbo will no doubt correct the spelling on that…)

  7. Can feel the love from here. It’s been wonderful following your stay in NY but it will be nice to know you’re back in Mackay again, even though probably battling the heat and rain. Love to Estorbo from Luther.

  11. What a treat it has been to meet you in person after all this time, Diane — you were even more funny and delightful than on your blog!

    Have a safe journey home and one day I hope you can enjoy NYC in the warm weather — tho’ all the snow did give you some good writing material.

    love,
    Victoria

    • gg…sorry to be so late answering this comment. Yes, the shrinking of the world and inhibitions does lead to new friendships.
      The interwebs are NOT all about evil porn and war-mongering.
