Norah Jones at the Green Building in Brooklyn

Old buildings have a magnificent echo. The bones of the building and the thousands who have walked through it reverberate for those that enter today. Take a moment and think about a particularly beautiful old building that you’ve walked through. How did it smell? What hue were the spoiled yet lovely walls? Was the floor concrete or did it retain the original stone or wood?

When I need a mental detox, I like to walk through an old building, or at least to think about the ones that I have walked through.
