You can never tell what message a city sends until you live there. You won’t know whether its message will resonate with you until you hear it. And you’ll probably have to find the city where you feel at home to know what sort of ambition you have.
Amber’s post today rang all kinds of bells for me. Since Sunday, I’ve been quietly in New York—taking exams from my computer in the morning, running errands in the afternoon, letting the city sink in every evening. Thursday, it’s back to Boston to tie up loose ends and then a week with Erik. Then come June, I’ll be here all summer.
It’s only been a few days. But already, I can’t deny: a part of me feels at home here. And I think that part has something important to tell me. I’m glad I have a whole summer to listen.
I’m a big fan of how Amber and Diana see the world. Happy I’ll be nearby to have some run-ins with Diana this summer. :)
