May 1, 2007: BROOKLYN, NY nest is almost empty. Dog Winni takes one last perch on her favorite window seat and looks longingly out the window as usual. I have a load of stuff to throw in my silver Pathfinder which awaits me like Cinderella's chariot down below on North 8th Street. I bid farewell to my Hipster and Polish neighbors alike...the ones I've grown Be annoyed by? Admire? Deal with? All of the above, actually, depending on the day. Hope I can fit everything. Wow. This is really it. Wish us well!
