I went to New York City earlier this year and in my room, I found a letter in the hotel bible. It was written in a different language but started with Hi Mom.
I wondered who and why they wrote this? And why was this in a hotel bible? It was a bit haunting and that’s how I feel when I'm in a city. I miss my family when I'm in a city.
There is a sense of freedom but loneliness when you're alone in a big, scary city.
