City lights… the sun goes down and the whole place lights up like it’s been swarmed by fireflies. The city lights after sundown make us dream, whether you are going into the city, driving home, or have the luxury of a spectacular balcony view, the lights in all of their colors tell us that there is life over there. Something is happening somewhere, in each window and on every street, there is energy, dancing, eating, chatting, fighting, loving, an ocean of humanity staying out after all of the normal jobs have ended.
It’s like looking up at the stars in the night sky and wondering about those places so far away, but with this galaxy of neon signs and street lamps you can go there. You can jump in feet first with a phone call and a train token. With an open heart and a fresh pair of legs you can join the chase for thrills and mix it up with the rest of them. It’s a world waiting to be explored, a world of long lines and ticket stubs, late hour clubs, black tie-banquets and back alley pubs, fresh young lovers and drunken haters, movers, shakers and troublemakers, all rolled into a giant blur, a single mad dream that’s hard to know when you are in the action but somehow more lucid from a distance, in the lights sparkling in your rear-view mirror as you drive home.
