Liberty

Liberty means different things to different people. It means freedom of course. But to a 10 year old I think it means freedom to be happy and freedom to be yourself. Yesterday was one of those days when my son Alex was in his element - visiting and exploring a city he loves so much.

It's hard to know why he has such a connection with New York, but he does. Yesterday was such a treat to walk the streets with Alex and then to take the ferry over to the Statue of Liberty. He knows with such intimate connection, the history of the buildings and landmarks - it's almost like he's lived a life here before.

For me it's just such a wonderful opportunity to spend the time with my son in a city that makes him so happy and curious.
