My long passed away father, was wondering on visits, why I live in New York and not in San Francisco, where both his phyiscal sons live. My adored friends Thomas and Michaela, when passing through, confirmed that the closer they got to our home the uglier it got.
Years later, Thomas was first to welcome me back in Frankfurt. He was right all along, the work city Frankfurt was a perfect fit for me returning from NYC. I visited splendid bars on my casual way home with a watchful eye on work material while sipping dry Martini. All to regain power for preparing the next day after getting home.
