My anecdote from the recital last night:
In my first weeks in New York, I was that fresh-faced girl making eye-contact with strangers on the street. I was stunned by the number of seeking eyes I found looking back at me, as if they were saying “Are you the person I’ve been looking for? The friend? The lover? Will you know me?” Maybe I saw reflected in their eyes what mine were asking.
I still make eye contact with people in New York, although I find myself doing it less and less these days. It gets me into trouble sometimes… but I’m still searching.
I recited this just before we launched into “Another 100 People.” More on the evening – as a whole and in particular – soon. For now, there are pictures over on Kim's blog and a review (!) from the Post.
