6th Avenue & W 59th Street, Manhattan:

I'm currently in New York City, to see a few paintings, and being here reminds me that I was American and American only, for the first 28 years of my life. It also makes me realize how special it is, that I’m now Dutch–to be a citizen of both the USA, and the Netherlands. I feel at home, within both countries. NYC reminds me just how fun life is oaths side of the ocean; I've even ran into a friend I haven't seen in years, in the East Village. We then walked about 25 blocks, just talking about everything we haven't over the past few years, catching up. How serendipitous this city is in those ways–the city gives one the sense that at any moment, anything could happen. I leave this weekend for Amsterdam...
