I’ve always loved New York’s stimulating environment. I thought it suited my “Type A” personality. Now I realize New York helped create my “Type A” behavior. I’m not so sure I want to stay that way.
I’ve always loved how accessible everything is in New York. Now I realize my life wouldn’t end if the drug store, supermarket and dry cleaner were one mile away, instead of one block away.
I’ve always loved living and working with people who come from different backgrounds, cultures and temperaments. Now I realize that no matter where I am, I will find people like this.
I’ve always loved New York because it was the capital of the media world and communications is my profession. Now the capital of the media world is in my computer, wherever that may be.
Frank Sinatra sang: “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” That may be true, but at FOF, “making it” is no longer a goal. I’d rather have a life that lets me smell the flowers. New York isn’t known for flowers.
