A view of NYC. Photo by Christine Macdonald.
Traveling far from home can mean different things to many people. For some, it’s an escape. Others cling to the rear-view mirror, never allowing new experiences to fully bloom.
Sometimes we don’t give ourselves permission to enjoy different moments in our lives – especially if they take place outside our comfort zone. Floating in the shadows of fear, those special moments remain stagnant, unlived.
My trip to New York was one of those times where excitement and adventure outweighed fear. A couple mild panic attacks aside, last week was amazing. Rather than pontificate in a lengthy post boring you with every detail, I will quickly list whatever words come to mind. You can fill in the blanks with your own imagination.

  1. You are having such awesome experiences! New York is one of my very favorite places. I hope you're feeling all right and taking breathers between all of your stuff. What are a couple of 40 somethings like us doing reinventing ourselves, anyway??(Oh, yeah. Having the time of our lives!)
