I love how downtowns are like mixed media artwork;
one layer on top of another,
a stunning collage of brick and glass and metal
with historic buildings reflected in shiny skyscrapers.
There was a time when those old brick structures
were marvelously modern – the jewels of the city!
But along the way, some folks dared to dream bigger
(and taller and fancier),
eventually and continually
re-creating the face of big cities around the world,
each one an evolving work of art.
Find the tallest spot in your hometown and head all the way up,
as high as you can go, till you’re sitting on top of the world.
Then sit back & enjoy the view.
