Moon and Sunrise
While taking a leisurely walk around a nearby observation deck this past Sunday evening, naturally, my eyes drifted in the direction of the Hudson River because it gave me a nice view of #nyc.
As soon as I began to focus my attention across the river on what was a clear blue night, I could not help but notice a bright full moon hovering over New York City.
As I stood there cool, calm, and collected, admiring yet, another breathtaking view, as you might expect me to do, I slid off to the side to get an unobstructed and better view.
Next and instinctively, I took a few pics and then took some time to reflect, which I love to do. In so doing, my first thought was about how fortunate I was to have this experience and the presence of mind to stop and savor this moment!
Then, I mentally compared my LinkedIn post from this past Saturday with the images I took this Sunday evening and stood in awe, appreciating both of these beautiful experiences.
As you can see in the slideshow, the contrast between watching the sunrise and the moon hovering over New York City on consecutive days is truly a sight to behold. It is also important to acknowledge the commonality: I was fully present and relaxed during each moment!
So after processing all of this and how it was making me feel in the here, and now, I eased over to the black metal bench you and quietly positioned myself behind a dear friend of mine, who had on a nice burgundy shirt, navy blue jeans, and some cute-looking sandals.
I must have sat on that bench for nearly 30 minutes, contemplating life, enjoying the breeze, all while typing my thoughts into my journal app.
Nevertheless, I felt compelled to share this spur-of-the-moment Tuesday evening post simply because I had a sudden urge to write. Moreover, when I think back to Saturday’s post, I now know why I felt like that journal entry was incomplete, and by blending in the images of the moon floating over the city in my mind, my thought is now officially complete. Lol!
Have a lovely evening and a successful rest of your week. 😊
