The World Around You

When you are going a snail pace during a marathon (26.2 miles in case you weren’t sure) you notice architecture (okay, I do). There is so much around us that goes unnoticed. Maybe it is because we are focused on that morning commute or trying to get the loud kids in the backseat to school or, or……

I took this photo of the St. John’s Bridge as I was crossing it last Sunday. If you ever have the opportunity to run or walk across, please do. The view is breathtaking and the architecture incredible.

As a matter of fact, maybe today concentrate on looking at the world around you. Notice color, form, sound, the bridge you may be crossing, the light coming through your cubical. Anything and everything. Take care and have a great day!

Also, a little history lesson:  The St. John’s Bridge was designed by David Bernard Steinman in 1931. David Bernard Steinman is also known for designing that other well known suspension bridge – Brooklyn Bridge.
