You guys are the best. I said I was feeling miserable, and you said nice things here and then sent all this great email (with songs and videos). There was a piece in the Times the other day about people who have friends and lots of networks of support living longer, so I just want to say: Thank you for helping me live longer!!
I fantasize about buying some cool building somewhere as a retirement home for me and my friends. (I am poor, so this is a total fantasy.) Ideally, it should be on a river somewhere or here in the city. This abandoned hotel was one of my dream retirement homes. It’s on the West Side Highway and Barrow Street. Okay, highway, not so ideal, but the river is right there, and there’s something very romantic about it. But I read that someone bought it and all the windows have since been replaced. I’m going to try to think positively. I’m sure there’s an even better building left that I can’t afford! Ha!
Anyway, thank you everyone for the incredibly nice email. It genuinely made me feel better.
