NYC Thoughts 1

leave a comment »

This is a different world.

I miss my friends—Pranay, Alex, Dennis, Tom, Colleen. Although Charlottesville was a small town, I have yet to meet people of such immense insight and perspective. I thought New York would be a city of great minds and great ideas, but the average person is still the average person. I will be an oddball here just as I have been all my life, but I know who I am so this is not something that can throw me into chaos. It will not be easy, but I am where I ought to be. It did not suit me to sit in a small town in an ivory tower of like-minded individuals. These are the trenches of my practice and my life.

My greatest achievement will be to pass years in this city with my eyes still on my mission and my feet still planted firmly in the values that I cultivated—to remain worthy of the company of my old friends.
