Lost in Manhattan

Behold, a rare rant…

(Apologies in advance.)

I left my job in Chicago to pursue a career in New York City. I have friends here… somewhere… but for now I am in a hotel room alone.

My very precious daughter Grace and very pregnant wife Erin are all back home while I figure this new (ad)venture out, which makes it all the lonelier.

Lost in Manhattan

I felt like pausing here, to exhale and put these words down somewhere. I’ve always been the reclusive type, preferring a quiet corner of the room to its noisy epicenter. But for some reason, this time, here, the isolation is cold. Or is that the wind chill?

I realize New York is not going to find me, I have to discover New York. I’ll get there, soon, when I’m done getting lost.

Thank you for listening.

    And we will continue to listen to each other, and support and pursue this dream together no matter how big the city and how lost we get. I love you.

    being so far from the little ones is def tough. NYC – it takes some time. you’ll look back on this post and have a good chuckle in the not-so-distant future. plus looks like you have some solid support back there in the windy city. good stuff man. here’s some good vibes coming your way….

    best…
