Pumpkin patches and rows upon rows of gorgeous, auburn trees…you guessed it, I’m on Long Island. Coming out here reminds me how easy happiness is..and how small all my problems really are. I’ve been enjoying some non-city activities including pumpkin picking, running in a neighborhood, enjoying a backyard and DRIVING! Ah..how sweet it is to get behind the wheel and not worry about city traffic or the shit city drivers 🙂 I remember coming here as a kid and feeling like the character in a Billy Joel song…it’s a sweet feeling to be back in the place it all began. My parents were born here, married here and my brother was surely conceived here (gross.) Strong Island…you will always have my heart.
