【明報專訊】I've been in New York since Independence Day, making arrangements for my album and spending time with my boyfriend. It's summer here, really summer. A New York summer, alternating between fierce heat and slow heat. We've been on a lot of rooftops late at night, first for the fireworks on July 4, then just to remind ourselves of this city and its astonishing skyline. We've sat on friends' stoops and been to multiple barbecues. One night we went to karaoke for two. Every hour in New York is filled, every second must be enjoyed, chosen, perfected. The options are endless.
