living in new york city

In 2006, I moved here to New York City from Minneapolis. Everything I owned, I carried here with me in two large suitcases

Five small boxes were on their way via UPS. I had to leave behind some in Public Storage in St. Paul.

 As I landed at JFK, I had no home to go to yet and not a lot of money in my name. Deep down inside, I felt that it was going to be all right. “Just breathe, Lisa”.

It’s going to be all right.
