Look Up!


I took this picture from the top of the Times Square Building
which houses The New York Times on 44th Street in Manhattan.
I was there for an event, and instead of paying attention to my host,
I gravitated toward the window to soak in this view.

Every day – twice a day – we are given
the most amazing eye candy
in the form of a sunrise and sunset.
It’s a gift that is free to all.

Even if you’re not awake in time for the sunrise,
the sunset should be accessible.
At that moment, stop whatever you’re doing,
go outside or to a window and look West (or East).
Use that time as a reminder to simply pause,
look up and be grateful for what is.
