The neurosurgeon next door
daydreams of slinging drinks in his own dive bar. The account executive three cubicles over
fantasizes about moving to a sunny place where he doesn’t have to be loaded to live well. And
who among us, at one time or another, hasn’t wondered if we might be able to knock
out a reasonable thriller? New Yorkers pursue many different lives all at once—our real ones, of
course, as well as all the other beautiful
scenarios that could be around the corner.
That might mean getting rich, living more virtuously (a.k.a. getting poor), or simply having a
lot more fun. So dust off that recipe for
vegan brownies. Phone your mom and beg her
to be a limited (and, oh, yes, silent)
partner in your design shop. Fill out that
application for flight school.
Join a rock band. Get thee to a nunnery.
