Things were a lot different fifteen years ago…

I’m sure a lot of people have pictures like this that, when you come across them, it raises the hair on your arm.

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.
