One of my favorite memories from The White House (and it has nothing to do with politics)
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.
