So much of me lives in this city now.
I've lived a hundred lives here. I've wandered, loved, lost, struggled, grown, and nearly died countless times here.
If I got coffee every single day with a different person I've personally connected with here in this city, it would take me over 12 years before I repeated the cycle. Thousands of the perspectives that have helped sculpt my worldview and my enduring values have come out of the marvelous minds and actions of the denizens of this gritty, baffling, inspiring metropolis.
