Riding the black dragon to a dream
It’s true…I am riding the black dragon Chinese bus all the way from NC to NYC every week while we look for a paint shop and home in Manhattan. It has been a dream of mine to go to NYU since I was knee high. It is a bit odd to be so much older…but I am grateful for the perspective, and extra focus it gives me. They were gracious enough to cover my Graduate School tab…so here we go! Seeing the old neighborhood mowed down and replaced by glass box developments was far more difficult to process than taking notes in my first class…..but I was the ONLY person using a pen and notebook..haha.
