"The mural, which is here at the loft, is quite sexy. But not as sexy as the lifestyle your blog illustrates. My dear, your e-mail reminds me how much fun it was to have you around. Judging by your pictures and the state of NYC nightlife, I think you took the party with you to Argentina."
This letter from a long-time and sorely missed friend brought to mind certain immortal words by the hard-drinking, tough-shooting great American novelist whose terse prose taught me so much, and which I paraphrase as follows:
If you're lucky enough to have lived in New York as a young woman, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, because New York is a moveable feast.
