The Center Of Grand
There are some places that just make you take a series of deep breathes over and over again. I am speaking of a place that makes you believe that anything is possible and that you can always come to and just be. If you could close your eyes and just picture a place like this, where would it be? I feel as though I always have a head start in coming up with a place like this because I live in New York City, however, that is just my internal story based on my intense bias point of view about this breathtaking island.
I was about to get on the train and I had to take a short detour inside because it feeds me in a colossal fashion without fail no matter what day I find myself here. The people are moving briskly through the corridors on their way to a thousand different destinations, the shops are more than plentiful with all sorts of curios, foods, literature, toys, and many other things. There is marble all around that is kept beyond pristine and the lighting is like something out of a classic vintage movie. It thrills me to feel how the old school architecture can seamlessly meet with the new and co-exist without any difficulty.
It is said that there are several thousands of people that pass through here every hour in one way or another. Some are passing through on the way to their destination, others are just here to gaze at the ceilings in amazement and take as many pictures as they possibly can. Obviously, there are people who work here as well. In my humble opinion, these people get a master class on how to interact with human beings daily. Its not that we don't all come into contact with people daily, its just that I believe when you are within these specific walls, you tend to have a different attitude. I can only speak for myself I guess, so that is why I am taking that liberty.
There is certainly magic in Grand Central Station. I wrote this post in the Apple Store on their computer and I took the picture with the computer as well. Times sure have changed quite a bit. I am beside myself and full of gratitude for just being able to be in this space right now....
