The World Trade Center site is becoming a triumph of resilience and faith.
The rest of the city appears to be in a building boom.
As always, the ideas are strong, the people toughened,
the history real.
Now, back to basics. How can the old skyscrapers be so tall and narrow?
Because NY is built on the strongest of geological bedrock.
A life needs bedrock too, something that can hold you up. When you find the bedrock of truth - you build there.
That is just smart.
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock." Matthew 7, 24-5
New York is an idea. It is the 'Big Time', the 'Wit and Wisdom and Commerce of the City' where we behold the joy of people who love the game.

Here life and humanity is celebrated. We are encouraged to prototype the grand idea with commitment and conviction.
In New York we are inspired to do our best work yet.
