11 Dec 07 So many familiar faces

When we first moved to New York City, it felt very familiar. Weird. It’s such a big city – a place where you can easily feel lost. There are so many people. Every day on my subway ride to work I submerge into a sea of strangers. A day doesn’t go by though when I don’t think I see someone I know. There are so many familiar faces. Even though the chances are pretty remote that I know these people, I sometimes think the familiarity is mutual. People smile. New Yorkers are a friendly bunch. Sure, it’s a big city but there are so many transplants here. Everyone wants a friend.
