"...in retrospect..." New York State by jujub
New York State Travel Guide: 23,960 reviews and 55,424 photos
One year has passed after the twin towers have fallen... Shock, desbelief, and an infinite sadness crossed my whole body as I heard the news on the radio, as i saw the smoke rising from the downtown area, as i saw the images on tv...
One year has passed, and I have learned to re-evaluate the priorities in my life. All of the sudden, some things did not seem as important anymore -- they probably never were to begin with... What counts now are the little things, things I have pushed back thinking they would always be there... A reminder of our own mortality is always harsh, but a very efficient reality check.
Don't forget to live a little. Spend time with your friends and family. Be kind to all. Look up at the sky. Watch a sunset. Watch the sun rise. Watch the clouds move. Take a vacation (and don't take work with you!). Smell a flower with your eyes closed. Listen to the leaves ruffle. Smile. Giggle. Laugh and make somebody's day. Be impulsive (stop holding back!). Let the wind kiss your face. Let the waves caress your feet. Let your body and soul rest.
Appreciate what you have now and share it. The greatest gift a person can give is love...
Peace and Love,
