In my business travels, there’s no place quite like New York City to send a shiver of anticipation down my spine. The energy that engulfs me - the hum of activity, the people intent on their personal destinations, the amazing architecture block by block - carries me home each time with fond memories and a renewed sense about the business of buildings.
It was surprising, therefore, to find myself going well beyond my usual “wow” reaction when my husband and I accompanied members of our son’s high school choir, orchestra, and drama departments to the Big Apple for a recent performance tour. That youthful response from the Jefferson High School students to the city’s larger-than-life persona will serve me well into the future. It’s never too late to get a fresh perspective, is it?
