Three values guide my life and my writing:
- Hope: choosing to believe that the future is home
- Honesty: refusing to edit out the uncomfortable
- Humility: deciding to celebrate others and their lives
This blog is a work in progress. I started it at the end of college to have an outlet for my ideas after I graduated. It’s basically a jungle gym for my brain and a place to store and sort my thoughts.
I experience life in the same way I experience a city. There are big, grand spaces where I stand in awe and there are small, quiet places where I embrace time alone or intimate conversation. Just like in a city, there are times in life that I proudly promote and others that make me feel ashamed.
Cities are as complex as me, they allow me to be myself (or question what that is), they give me a chance to grow up, and they repay commitment with a sense of purpose and place. In great cities, there is always the past, present, and future.
