It seemed unthinkable, leaving New York City. But, my soul pointed in that direction I never expected to visit, much less to inhabit. My heart was broken here in the city, and some small shattered pieces would remain. Most of it I would take with me to heal and learn to trust again, to regenerate into something more resilient and more loved. Photos taken on 2006-05-24. Last two snapshots by my friend Bethany.
