I grew up on the south side of Syracuse, and as I grew older, like a lot of people, I moved away. For over 20 years, I lived in the New York City area.

When I saw this image, it reminded me not only of New York, but also of the time I spent as a child, being able to ride my bike in the streets. The street was like an extension of your house. You felt like you owned the street. And there was always a newness to it -- the promise of some kind of activity, either taking place or about to take place. The image spoke to that memory --the city outside. But as you mature, there's also the city within -- meaning the comfort that I contain within me, as an extension of the love that I have for God.

The city within
holds a boulevard of hope.
Every street knows you.
