My parents recently found an old cassette tape, made when I was seven - the same age my daughter is now - as part of an ongoing correspondence we had with closely family friends who were temporarily living in Australia. I was struck by how at seven I totally sounded like Brooklyn (or a LI version of Brooklyn) but even more struck by the fact that my daughter doesn't sound that way at all! I, too, often miss the vibrancy of New York but have come to love living with my family in our current corner of the world.
