I love New York City trains. Riding the subway is always on my “to do list” when I visit the city. The people are amazing. Going about their personal business, passengers see people around them without being intrusive. While the locals mind their own business, I never have difficulty finding someone to help me get on the train I should really be on.
In a recent article I wrote for Childswork, I delved into the all-too-familar tradition of children’s innate gifts left unseen because they failed to do something else exceptionally well; parents are at times disappointed at a mediocre result in one area, so they stop looking at others.
