Last night I played tennis with an old friend, Janet. We grew up competing in junior tournaments together in New York City/Upstate/Jersey area and then “against” each other in the Ivy League Conference - me at Brown, she at Yale. Now, she’s back working in New Haven after completing London School of Economics. She was an incredible player and had the most beautiful strokes. I had not picked up my racquet in over a year and warned her that I was very rusty. To my surprise, my strokes, footwork, timing and concentration were all well intact! I’ve learned so much being in architecture school that I truly wonder where these skills were being lodged! We got off to an awesome start without missing a ball. We got up to a hundred ball rally at one point and I was smiling the entire time. I am so happy we played and I am so fortunate to have tennis in my life. I’m curious… Has art/architecture always been your hobby? What was your passion before architecture/design?
