In the pause: The joy of walking to work in New York City

I walk to and from work so I catch glimpses of the lives of passersby each day. Two friends in a cafe. People walking their dogs. An exchange between a coffee cart vendor and a customer. I try my best in that 40-minute walk to stay present. To notice. To appreciate the richness of life in New York City. Though it’s not always pretty, it’s always vibrant. I feel lucky every day to be here.
