While certainly not the most flattering photo of me, this was taken fifteen years ago on a trip to NY with my then boyfriend. Just a few years ago, he came across the photo and sent it to me.
I wasn’t actually up in the towers on this visit — although we covered a lot of ground on this occasion (this pic was taken from Ellis Island). I did, however, go up to the observation deck in 1998 and I was at Ground Zero two months after September 11th — one of the most eerie things to experience.
So, today’s post is simply a reminder not to forget to stop and smell the roses.
