The High Life & Other Spring flings

One of the of greatest pleasures of having an open schedule in New York City on a Friday evening as Spring is shaping and the layers of clothes are lighter, is taking a walk West toward the Hudson River, from the East side of town.
Tonight, after work, instead of going shopping, instead of happy hour drinks or heading straight to the subway, I walked from 13 th Street & Fifth Avenue to The Meatpacking District. This is the extremely gentrified, utterly chic, Celebrity sited neighborhood that start on 8th Avenue and 14th Street, goes a few block south before Greenwich Village starts. But most importantly, on this sunset moment is that The Meatpacking District touches part the Hudson River and has a elevated city park named the Highline, that once, long ago in the1980s, were train tracks.
This rather famous neighborhood is home to The Apple Store, Diane Von Furstenberg and The original Gansorvoort Hotel and a various haute shopping to chic for words. Now these train tracks rise above the noise and shops and provides not only sunset views, it gives you a respite high above the City to enjoy the River quietly thawing from the Winter's Vortex.
It seems that I was given a more than usually peaceful green space tonight as the Park with its Art installations and baby Burch tree budding with fresh life, quietly soothe the work week off my mind, and allowed fresh warm Spring breeze to come in vantage point. This should be a tradition, because it's a most naturally relaxing way to start your weekend.

Making a decision is a Total call to Action.

“Hey – somebody has to write all those stories: why not me?” - Elizabeth Gilbert on writing. A thought entered my mind today, what if Angels await us as we procrastinate on our Goals? What a sad, horrible waste of Divine time. Just imagine, this Angel, who is the quarterback to aid you in realizing your dreams, goals and ambitions, but first you MUST make the first move, Action is needed. Definitively moving towards your goals and not simply dreaming of them, deciding. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: "Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen". The Universe. Conspires. Really? Yes!
Lets break down this formidable quote, starting with: "Once". Once starts every story. " Once upon a time..." Not: "Perhaps One Day..." Once, not If, not when, not maybe, rather ONCE. Again it's that Angel's request " As soon as (ONCE) you make your leap of Faith (DECISION) , I got you (I'LL CONSPIRE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN)". Live your Dreams Thus, I make move and that's it? I don't have to work? Fairy Angels will lead me straight to the finish line? Not quite. We all know that making that first move IS the Hardest part of Goal. 90% is showing up to make your move. 10% is the sweat of perseverance. Now, what I truly believe is the tenacity of The Universe (Divine Intervention) is to Conspire to make this happen, to give you, throw favors your way. Like your own personal "Hook me ups." To Conspire is to basically line up situations, things, people for a Big event to occur. The Conspirators do everything & anything possible to help in the fruition of this Big Event.
To Conspire is not just to plan, but to seamlessly Orchestrate with military like precision. So in the end, making a decision is a total call to Action.

Prayer for the Unemployed

This prayer comes at a time in my life where my faith is my anchor. An Anchor keeping me from drowning in worries and stress after being downsized from my position at a magazine publishing company that was going through major budget cuts.

My hope is that this prayer will help raise your spirit, bring you hope and God willing, a great job.



Write it out on your own journal, paper, napkin, whatever is close to you and keep it long after you find your dream job, your new career or just to past it on to someone who will be looking for work, as you are now. Godspeed, and good luck in your search, is in everything in life, it may be just around the corner - after you read say this prayer:

Prayer for the Unemployed

" O Saint Joseph, I pray to you for I am out of work, for I want to work by earning my living and supporting my family.

You who are the patron of workers, grant that unemployment may vanish from my rank, for I will put my strength, ability in serving my fellow men and women and earn a just salary.

You are the patron of families; do not let those who have children to support and raise lack the necessary means. Have pity on our brothers held down in unemployment and poverty because of sickness or social disorders.

Help our political leaders and captains of industry find new and just solutions; may each and everyone have the joy of contributing, according to his abilities to the common prosperity by an honorable livelihood.
Grand that we may all share together in the abundant goods God has given us and that we may help under privileged countries. Amen."
