Yingye brought me a black vintage hat from Nebraska for alteration. The two times I met with her were both in New York; she always chooses New York City as a connecting point before heading back to China, so that she can stop and meet with friends. After a few years’ stay in New York, it’s unavoidable that I have to fly thousands of miles to visit friends and families back in China. It only takes a day to fly across continents and oceans, and to travel by air is justified since time is so precious. Having been to too many cities on a fast pace, I have no idea how long I will stay in a particular place. One day, in a taxi in Beijing, the radio was playing  Tao Ching-Ying‘s Walking to New York, the song suddenly struck my heart that I wanted to walk to New York, to look at all the views I have missed. Walk to New York, and let all the emotions settle themselves as time goes by.

映烨从美国中部的Nebraska捎来一顶黑色的古董帽让我改造。和映烨两次见面都是在纽约,她每次回国都想选择这里作为中转之地,停下来会会朋友。出国几年后,要见老朋友和家人都要飞,几千公里的距离一天就到。飞的原因莫过于,时间太少。走得快了走得多了,自己都不知道在一个地方能停留多久,于是有一天在北京的出租车上无意中又听到陶晶莹的那首《走路回纽约》,愕然随即感慨:忽然想要走路回纽约。看看这一路我曾经忽略的风景。走路去纽约,也让感情在时间里,有机会沉淀自己。
