I recently visited New York City with my husband and our close friends. This was my first time to experience the amazing hustle of this many people all in one place. I saw a sea of families, locals, foreigners, street artist, business men and women, ticket seller (or anything else sellers), costumed characters, pets; you name it and they gravitate to Time Square in the heart of Manhattan. Combining that with the energy of lights, action, shopping, restaurants and theater it was electrifying and exciting to witness. I loved every moment of activity and would go back in a heart beat.
My visit to the Ground Zero Memorial in New York was profound. To see the honoring of those lost to America was so beautiful.
I learned that all names with the white roses represented the person’s birthday. To me, it was so much more; I saw love, respect, peace and remembrance. I was compelled to carry the honoring with my photograph. That horrific day America changed. We filled with grief, confusion, compassion and love. So all who step on this sacred ground it too will fill your life.
Take it in, embody the honoring, send love out to all who were lost, affected and who carry the memories
Have you ever seen so many signs in one place?
It always amazes me how much we advertise. Here in New York City, the advertising mecca of the US, it is very clear where business spend the dollars to reach us. This visit helps to solidify the understanding why the show “Madmen” lead us to a place of understanding the “Ad Man” and the depth at which businesses would go to get the consumer to see and purchase their wares.
I love this scene on the streets of New York City, as it depicts this cultural phenomenon. It covers all aspects of our sense from food, electronics, destinations, drinks, shopping, beauty, brawn, where you are, where you’ve been and where your going. Amazing!
I love the “urban landscape” of New York City. Always something to tickle our senses and light up the surrounding environment. Electrifying! You can visit many times and never cease to find new discoveries about this magical city.
