my friend erica and I spent memorial day weekend on fire island, a small island off the coast of long island. my mom has had a little house there for years, and it's my favorite place. a long time ago someone introduced bamboo to the island, and now the entire place is covered with bamboo. it makes fire island look like an exotic, tropical island, when in reality it's only an hour or so from new york city.
