Vital Signs

The notion of restoring the vital signs of an ailing spot with a simple healing touch has everything to do with revitalizing not only that specific place but also the entire area that surrounds it.

I believe that some of the magic of medicine can and should be applied to cities, for many of them are ailing, and some are almost terminal.
