Hello there fellow photography lovers! Here are a few splendiferous photos of the Big Apple. This is a pretty epic photo that captures the architectural beauty of our age. The new World Trade Center is hard to take your eyes off. And well- being a country bumbpkin (spelling?) - the novelty of skyscrapers is still fresh. It's hard not to be sucked into a world of wonder, each building raises a myriad of questions. How much does one of these cost? what is the penthouse like? Who designed it? What are the people like that live there?
Ive spent the last two days in the city as ive been driven here as a reprieve from my unhappy existence on Long Island. The past few months the isolation and loneliness have come to a head, that combined with a birthday had really upset me. I feel like my life isn't mine. Ive always have had friends to call, places to go, passion and desire. All of which have disappeared
So I'm making it my mission to find my passion and chase it with a heart full of burning desire, while I'm 4 years into my SCI , I know I need to recreate the sojourn I did in my early 20's. The 3 month trek across southern Vietnam into Cambodia and ending in southern Thailand was a character defining coming of age. It was undoubtedly the nourishment I needed at the time and I can see the parallels of that time in my life and my current predicament.
Everything is different. Im paralyzed . I've lost most of my hobbies, most of my feeling and sensation. My grieving has recently waned into a normalcy only time can provide and with such I've decided to chase a new life, one which I'll be happy
First - travel. I need to get out, meet new people, see new things, experience things in my new body and adjust to all of it. I want to stay somewhere and immerse myself in Spanish so I can finally become fluent
second - get a job I can do remotely all the while getting new photos of my travels
Third - Move to the city. Life is so much better. Everything I need is right here. Physical therapy, great food, people, endless activities, Acessible everything !!
