New York City Native.
INTJ Poster Child.
"She is of the city. No, wait stop, rewind, playback. The City is of her. Urbanmancy is an art, City grafting a skill, both are well known to her. The concrete that surrounds her comforts and heals all wounds. The steel and glass are good close friends on lonely nights as the wind whips up 7th from the park. Some people are born somewhere. Some though, are native.
In return for the gifts the City has given freely of itself, there is building, design, architecture in its purest form. The art and craft of making where there was not. Of using space to compliment both the surroundings and its own intrinsic concept. Giving back is key. Living freely, yet honestly, is key.
There are wounds, some are raw. If they are your problem you will be informed. If they aren't? Show some respect. You'll get twice its worth in return. If there are questions, ask them. Just understand you may not like the answers, that is your problem, no one else's.
You are as welcome as you make yourself, but the rules here are not yours. They are hers. You set your rules in your space. Give and take. Build and renew. Dance and dream. These are the keys.
