“New York is the place where you can find everything that you didn’t realize you needed.”
The city is jam-packed top to bottom with anything you could ever imagine – all things good, all things ridiculous, all thing avant garde.
Walking down the streets of Manhatten full of beautiful clothes and beautiful people makes me dream about opportunity and the things to come, but also easily makes me feel insufficient. A place like this is overwhelming and full of light, but can work your heart in ways that shouldn’t be worked if you don’t pay attention to it. I wonder how many people feel insignificant here.
The other night, Brian took me to a show in a room shaped that felt like a shipping crate (small space, huge talent). And even though the band only made $3, I promise you that what they did that night was significant.
