I moved to New York City in September 2011 to embark on a year of community living and volunteering. Although I swore to myself that I would never start a blog because everyone has a blog these days, here I am with a blog and here you are reading it. A combination of thoughts, lessons learned, and musings about the city, this blog is a glimpse into my life on this journey.
Why the name “seek the peace?” I was inspired by a biblical verse: “Seek the peace of the city where I have sent you.” I am here in New York to learn and grow but also to give back to this place that I’ll call home for the indefinite future. I am on a journey to love this ground.
A few of my deepest passions are immigrant rights, feminism, and social justice. I am a much-too-avid coffee drinker, a dog lover, and a wanna-be traveler. I love conversation so comments, questions, concerns, musings, stories are always welcome. Thanks for visiting and I wish you well as you seek the peace of your city and learn to love your ground.
Update: In September 2012 seekthepeace moved to Philadelphia, PA.
