NYC…. IS PEOPLE..
PEOPLE HAVE STORIES… COUNTLESS STORIES…
WRITE YOURS.. READ OTHERS…
This month .. THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY has 125 BOOKS.. ready to virtually borrow .. ( E READER and a quick sign up..).
NYC STORIES WE LOVE..
The FRENCH have a unique way of thinking ..
It is considered “impolite” to ask ones age, livelihood.. address
It is POLITE to ask “WHAT INTERESTS YOU..”.
(DEEPER CONVERSATIONS… MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS)
Now.. I take it to a whole LEVEL beyond ..
You want a “story”? You want to experience shared humanity ..
You want to bask in RESILIENCE.. gain a piece of insight?
CREATE A REAL “MOMENT” ?
ANSWER THIS ..
“ YOU THINK YOU KNOW.. BUT YOU HAVE NO IDEA..”
Surprise me, Shock me.. Knock my preconceived “bias” on its ass.
( we all mentally form opinions the second we see someone ..we are
Most often.. “degrees” of wrong)
Let’s talk about who you REALLY are.. what you have experienced that
Created the true essence of YOU.. Lets share the AWE, form tears in the corner of our eyes .. breathe slower and deeper .. BOND in sheer appreciation of resilience and “SEE EACH OTHER”..
PANDEMIC NYC.. we have little time for casual pleasantries.. we are all struggling .. LETS CELEBRATE THAT.. ( I no longer care where you got those shoes on “sale”).
THE BIGGEST HUMAN NEED IS TO MATTER..
WE ALL MADE IT THIS FAR.. LET US SHARE…
THAT.. IS THE NYC STORY.. 8 MILLION PEOPLE.. bumping into each other “RANDOMLY” ..looking for each other .. if not just for a moment …
