But you did seek beauty, and in doing so, have found your peace. I too lived in the city (Manhattan) for 7 years (when it was not so 'green', and still, it had a beauty all its own). But it is not the kind of beauty I seek now, in maturity. I did not find peace in NYC; excitement yes, success yes, energy yes - but most often it was hard to tell if I was feeding off the energy of the city or if the city was feeding off the energy of me. We take nourishment from our surroundings, visual and otherwise, and it is important to seek that which is nourishing... I am glad that you allowed yourself to continue seeking until you found it.
