Back to NYC

The last few months in LA have been fantastic.  We have made new friends, we have connected with old friends, we got to spend a lot of time with my brother and sister-in-law and their kids.  The weather has been well…what can I say.

Life here is easier.  It is nice to spend a few months differently.  We both miss NYC.  Like when a good vacation starts to wind down, I always think if I have to stay one more day I will be bummed.  It is just time to go home.  I miss the beat of the street, the pounding of the sidewalk, the latest and greatest, the art, the restaurants, the stores and the edge.

Yet being out here has changed the way I think about the day to day work life.  It is healthy to take a birds eye view and get out of the weeds on occasion.

When we drive back into the city we used to play the Genesis song Back in N.Y.C. from the album The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.  I might have to crank up the song on my head phones when our plane lands back in the town that I call my home.

I see faces and traces of home back in New York City!
So you think I’m a tough kid? Is that what you heard?
Yeah, well I like to see some action and it gets into my blood…
