revisiting Bon Iver, Bon Iver, drinking free starbucks chai tea amanda brought me from her work, earlier mum and i finished an indian food dinner on 27th and Lex and she’s in town for the rest of the week, and we ended up eating italian ices in Madison Square and sitting on the metal tables and chairs they set up in the intersection of Park and Broadway on axis with the Flat Iron Building and in view of the State Building. Tonight was so beautiful and no matter where we are together—Florence, Bologna, Ghent, Cambridge or NYC—she has a way of making me appreciate everything that has happened to me in the interim of seeing one another. ”you have lived so much already.”
