Snow Days

I was riding the subway home on Friday and thought a little bit about the impending snow storm. They always say that its going to snow like crazy, but then it never really does. But this time, it did. And it was actually kind of beautiful. Especially when the early morning hit on Sunday and not a car was to be found on 6th Avenue or 13th Street on my way home from a nice evening out. The white snow, the chill of the air, and the smell of freshly minted snow. It was truly beautiful.

On that subway ride home, I noticed this woman who was silently crying. She was attractive, dark hair, and ordinarily she would strike me as someone who has a lot going for her in life. For some reason, she was sad. Tears kept streaming down her face and she wiped them with her hands and then on the sleeve of her long black winter coat. It made me think about how many people are alone during the holidays and who have had a rough year. Maybe she just broke up with a boyfriend. Maybe she just lost her job. Maybe one of her loved ones died recently and this holiday season just isn't the same. It reminded me to be thankful for all those that come into my life, no matter how. It reminded me that life is worth living, that tears are genuine sadness of things past, present, and even the unknown future.

For the woman on the subway...if you happen to be reading--you too, are beautiful.

Been a while...

Everywhere I'm looking now...I'm surrounded by your embrace.

So it has been a while since I've posted something. I didn't even notice until Lynda Love mentioned to me that my blog hadn't been updated since August. When I was still 33 years old. Subconsciously perhaps that is what I wanted, to be trapped in the past somewhere--waiting to find out what was going to happen in my future but holding on to things in the past.

I've started to realize that life isn't really "short" as people often say. It is really a long journey where if we take every day and do one thing that makes us smile, that makes us laugh, that makes us human--then life is worth living for every one of those days on this long journey.

So you might be asking, what has been going on with you since August. My answer is kind of simple. I've been busy doing what I do best--living.

Approaching 34

So next weekend I'll be turning 34..where oh where, have the years gone? I started thinking about my life and what I'm dreaming of doing versus what I'm actually doing to get there. So I thought, enough of that--I'm going to start doing more towards what I think is a great idea and what I am passionate about.

That, and lose like 15-20lbs!

I'm looking forward to seeing family next weekend...
