The quality time with friends and family
The company, the take out and home-cooked food, the conversations, city views and weather
The air even, especially when you think about that nasty near-foul NYC smell
The disrupted sleep pattern from late night video game marathons, squabbles with the bro or the homegirl ...
Enjoy every damn thing.
Peel away the urge to feel control/stability/familiarity/routine-sick when these weeks start to feel like a long time away from my bed - 940 miles away
Because I know without a doubt that I will miss these moments, these people that I love - if I don't relish them now.
