Stuffed Pantry

April 19, 2018

I’m in NYC, staying at a friend’s apartment. She’s often away at length on business and wishes her apartment were more occupied. I am having an amazing time staying in her home.

I have been lucky with my friends. I have them all over the world. All kinds of people. Genuinely good and beautiful people. People who are perfect even with all their flaws. Can you imagine that? One thing that they have in common is that they love me, they show it and I feel the […]
