The More Things Change... the Less Surprised We Become.

Although, no less sad.

I meant to post this on Monday, but things are a bit hectic these days...

I can't belive Rose's turn and Copeland's closed on the same weekend. The New York Times had profiles on each of these New York institutions, including a touching video of the regulars at Rose's taking their last turns at the mic.

Part of me wonders, if I do finally leave New York State, and come back to visit, will I recognize anything? But then I know: of course I will. And I'll be full of stories about what used to be here, and who I used to go there with, and the crazy things we used to do.

There's something sweet about that.

Actually, missing a place like that is a kind of sweet nostalgia that I love.
