I’m catching up on my New York Times reading tonight.  And this editorial  caught my attention.  It captures something of the nature of cities:

“Everywhere there are people saying goodbye. Couples parting at street corners and brownstone steps, a man helping a woman into a cab and watching as it pulls away, a flock of teenagers noisily disassembling at a subway entrance. We don’t live in the midst of one another just for these moments, but these are the moments that make living in the midst of one another feel coherent, as though the city is something we create, in collaboration, day after day. We go home, go to bed and turn out the light, knowing that Monday will come at its own speed and that we’ll wake up already racing.”

As God has created, making us in his image, would it be any wonder that we too create?
