The differences between New York and Sarasota are more than skin deep.
But here is an example of just how deep the skin is – my New York office building:
And this is Sarasota’s Main Street, facing West. The adobe-colored building with the red roof in the rear on the right is the main courthouse:
I do the same kind of work in Sarasota (OK, different type of law, but it’s still litigation) that I did in New York, but in the big New York office building the work followed me home every night and I had no choice but to obsess about it. In the quaint Sarasota building (not pictured here), I leave work at work and go home with a clear conscience. At this stage of my life, I’ll take the latter.
