"I hopped on the cheapest flight from Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York. I arrived with my Walkman, Simon and Garfunkel tapes, one suitcase, an old Apple computer tower, about $1,500 in cash, a place to crash, and a pocket full of promises and recommendations. All I needed."America (revisited) — The Daring Media Blog
This is best read while listening to the song “America”. You might have to play it twice. Apologies to Simon and Garfunkel.
