which really means i'm standing in the dj booth looking online and thinking about life.
i have few of these nights left. here at bar 13 in union square in new york city on a tuesday night.
am i to cherish these moments...
but are these not the moments i'll remember in my last days?
or maybe i'll remember the characters i've come across.
recently i've come to know a young man across the street at 'little italy pizza'.
its a relatively new spot - relative to the 5 or so years i've been at bar 13 every tuesday.
i think it used to be a bagel place but was never open late.
for the past two or six months (never can tell) i've been going there after "work" to get a slice of pizza...this has contradicted my daily exercise and healthy food routine.
the young man behind the counter is always friendly. bright blue eyes and a great smile. he is very inviting and considerate and genuinely wants to know how i am and how my "work" was. i am always polite and increasingly friendly as i've come to know him.
although he is a new friend, i recognize that he will not be a friend for long.
and that enables me to recognize the many people i've met in this life.
this new york city life.
so to you, young man that works across the street who i'll likely visit in 2 hours this very evening, i wish you a beautiful healthy life - one filled with joy, adventure, knowledge, love, excitement and accomplishment. i wish that you - when the time has come - will lay back and be content and grateful for all that you've seen in this world.
for these wishes i pray for you, i hope for myself as well, and for all those i love and who have touched me in my life.
