After a long break at home, I got back to New York City last night. I’m definitely excited to see my friends and begin my new classes, where I’ll be reading books like Inside Picture Books, by Ellen Handler Spitz, and Show Me A Story, edited by Leonard Marcus . I’m also missing my family already and feeling more homesickness than I remember from when I first moved here. But it hasn’t even been 24 hours so I guess that’s to be expected. To get back into the swing of things I’m going to check out this bookstore this afternoon. Time to start a new semester of writing, readings, and hopefully a lot of fun!
