New York, New York

 Dear New York,
     We've only just met, but I feel like I know you. You've only been in three dozen of the movies I've seen, after all. I can only imagine the adventures a person could have in this city. I'm so used to having mine at sea, but after visiting your concrete playground filled with underground mazes and over-water bridges, I understand that adventure can happen just about anywhere. After our first meeting, I can't wait to see you again so I can get to know you better.

     Take care of my sister, New York. I love her so. I've noticed you've taught her many things already. She is stronger and she has grown.


another note from the road: We're off to the South. You'll be happy to know I haven't lost my mind yet. I was shocked too. It's been almost three weeks, and my gills have nearly dried up, but we're headed for waves and you better believe I'm happy about that.

    I have only been to NYC once. I went last December so it was cold and Christmasy and I absolutely loved it. Well everything but the cold part.
