I am so happy to finally be writting this post from the comfort of my own bed. My Little Man is beside me napping on his little perch. It's the only time I can call my little feathered one 'an Angel'! My Love for New York runs deep. It's a completely different world than that of mine. I'd like to believe that I live in the City and a place where cultures mix and collaborate for a daily dose of reality. Sadly, Phoenix is not like this. Don't get me wrong, I love Phoenix. This is now my home.
Phoenix is all about the Sun, the Heat, the Mountains, the beauty of God's heavely creations on Earth. New York City is about the Creation of Man and the Beauty that God Gives Man to make such amazing creations. The City never sleeps. From my hotel room, I could hear the sound of the Train passing every ten minutes or so. After a while, the sounds of the train fade and you become accustom to the 'noise'.
This trip was about Love & Understanding. Friendships. Personal Growth. My Power Within. My Physical Fitness. My Reality. Throughout the quiet walks, I enjoyed my Conversations with God. Riding in the Subway reminded me that God is everywhere. People do not necessarily talk to one another but the Human Spirit is evident. People dashing to and from work. People doing all they can to get through the day. The difference with those in New York City is that their Souls and Spirits are placed on display each and every day. Early in the morning, you can smell the delicious hot breads when you pass the bakeries and the morning coffee brewing at the opening of the door at a cafe. Sounds of the Subway and traffic meshing into the Sounds of Every day Life. This time around, my heart saw more than my eyes could ever have seen.
Attending Mass at Church of Saint Joseph in Greenwich Village was a sheer joy. Amazing how one can feel at home with God anywhere once you allow yourself to feel his Love and Presence. Overall, I'm blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy time away and to connect with good friends. This trip was much more than business and running. This trip was all about a New York State of Mind, The Inner Joy, & the Realities of my Life. Simply put: I'm blessed.
