Musings | Concrete jungle

New York is a lot of things in my life:  my home, source of inspiration, financial torturer, goldmine of wonderful friends and concrete jungle where professional dreams are made (if you work hard enough and know the right people). This  complicated, love/hate relationship I’ve developed was perfectly encapsulated for me the other week by author Amor Towles. I went to one of his book tour talks the other week for his first published work and bestseller Rules ofCivility (read it!) with my lovely friend Blair. Among other very intelligent things, Amor said the quote below during his speech and a lightbulb went of in my head! It is the essence of this city that never sleeps and I really couldn’t think of living anywhere else right now. As I grow into adulthood, through all the growing pains, I realize that New York has it all in store for me, but I am the key to unlocking success. Time to go make things happen! xx
