I think maybe the one criticism I have about living in NYC is that the people are always ‘on-the-go’ ; they never slow down… I get that this city has to move a mile a minute but its such a wonderful place , how can we explore what it really has to offer if we don’t stop for a few and see?
I recently realized that sometimes I rush for no reason. I’ve slowed down, I’ve decided to eat my food slower, savor the taste. Stop for a few moments breathe in (its city air, but still there’s always battery park)
I don’t know … this was just a thought that ran through my mind the other day after I watched a man freak-out on an escalator because he couldn’t walk up it.
[WHY DO PEOPLE WALK UP THE ESCALATOR? IS IT REALLY THAT MUCH FASTER?]
To make a long story short he did walk up the escalator only to wind up three steps in front if me. What was the point? He made a fool of himself and still didn’t get too far, seems like a waste to me.
What I’m trying to say is : slow down, savor life, you’re not going anywhere just yet
………………….but then again that isn’t for me to decide
