I work right around the corner from Rockefeller Center, but ever since I moved away from the UWS, I stopped taking the BD trains and therefore, also stopped walking through throngs of tourists to get to work. Though I’m happy I’m no longer pushing and shoving my way to the office every day, I have also just realized that I am no longer taking advantage of the amazing holiday cheer going on so close, yet so far away from my mind.
I needed to go to Anthropology the other day, and I came across this:
It takes my breath away every time I see it, yet this year, I forgot it was there at all. Reminds me that sometimes, I should stop rushing to the nearest subway in my attempt to go go go, and just be. Allow the chilly air to bite my nose, allow the wind blow my hatless hair, allow the world to continue spinning without me, and maybe, if I’m lucky, in those moments, I’ll be able to see just how beautiful my life really is.
