I am tired of this City not living up to it's potential.

Well, this malaise (not living up to its potential) is legacy...it's deeply-embedded...and wide-spread. In fact, there are some intriguing thought-paths to do down regarding how 'new' residents see the City as opposed to those who are 'lifers'.

I could yammer on about this because of how I see it being affected by my prime passion, civic engagement, but I'll limit myself to this: In order for better results to unfold regarding its potential, the City's potential has to be defined and the resources at hand need to be marshalled properly. And to me, we've been in this state of malaise so long that, though we pay lip-service to the notion, we've not even managed to define our possibilities.

Because of this, because of this 'unformed state', often when something appears, a bona fide opportunity...we get all desperate...and invariably things go all 'Pete Tong'.
