I used to be better at taking a break at what I was doing, enjoying my surroundings and sometimes capturing it on audio to give me an audio recall of that moment in time. Here are a few examples that I recently came across.
The Birds in the Park, Melbourne Australia, Feb 2009.
A gorgeous small park right next to my apartment had a lot of noises going on from birds much different than you find back in Oklahoma.
The new job is asking me to make quarterly trips to Washington DC, and New York City. I have no objection as I love coming back to NYC and seeing friends, even more so with the vibe to be working here again. I finally got the meet the people I work with and talk to on phone and online meetings almost daily. I think this job is going to go well.
From my rooftop in New York City in lower Manhattan, Battery Park City. When I filmed this I knew I would be leaving New York in about a month and a half. I thought seeing in later would make me a little sad to miss the rooftop, my apartment and living in NYC, but it doesn’t.
I’m back in New York City! What an awesome visit so far. Have been couch hoping from friend to friend and visiting everyone I can as well as new people who happen to be visiting New York at the same time. I finally got to meet Shayla from Australia today for the first time since we’ve been Flickr friends for several years.
Nathan and his mom flew to New York to help me pack everything up and drive the uhaul truck from New York City to Oklahoma City over the next three days. That kid being with me makes this move a lot easier.
Walking around the city with Nate, I happen to be waiting in the Time Warner Center lobby while Nate is using the bathroom. I heard a familiar voice and saw Jessie in a group talking and we both saw each other and gave big hugs. Seriously, who just happens to run into people in a city of more than six million people? I told her I was packing and leaving NYC in the next few days so we went out for a goodbye drink later to catch up and say goodbye.
Jessie is an opera singer from Dallas, Texas and a very talented one too. I hope we stay in touch. It was always good having someone from the fly-over states to hang out with in NYC.
