New York's ambition is creativity. An ambition with the weaknesses of all ambitions, but with the advantage that it is always looking towards the future, to be a part of a bigger story, a larger patchwork.
I have been drawn to that creative ambition in recent days. I desire to do something new, to push on, to find a place.
I will fly to New York tomorrow. Eager for that reminder New York gives, as only she can, that the city goes on without us, that a song will be sung regardless, but that we are invited to add our voice to the chorus.
