What do you see?

Peace Symbol in rock formation

IMPRESSIONS: I was hiking in San Francisco and came across this rock formation on the ground.
When you look at it, what do you see?

To many, it is the peace symbol that was designed for the British nuclear disarmament movement and later made popular by hippies in the U.S. during the 1960s. It was a beacon of hope for those who protested nuclear weapons, pushed to protect the Earth and create a new age utopia.

To some, though, it is a symbol of destruction…

Step by Step

Rocks Step by Step

IMPRESSIONS: I was walking down this path and it reminded me of the path of life. Life is about change and growth. There will always be rocks on the road – some bigger than others. Instead of being obstacles, they may actually be stepping stones. Although we may not see the path, there is one. We simply have to look a little closer, be patient, and understand that change happens step by step.

An Ordinary Day

New York City

IMPRESSIONS: I lived in Ground Zero on 9/11.
For some reason this photo I recently took reminds me of that day.
Maybe it’s the eerie glow on the buildings or the blue-grey sky.
This is what came to mind about that day…

Watch the Gap

Watch the Gap

IMPRESSIONS: Every time I get on the Long Island Railroad I see this sign: “WATCH THE GAP.” It’s there to help us avoid falling down to the tracks and getting injured. It reminds me of that gap many of us live in – the gap between who we are in our current circumstances and who we want to be. So, every time you see this sign – on the platform for the subway, Amtrak or the commuter rail – remember to WATCH THE GAP. Pay attention to your own life so your dreams don’t fall through the cracks.

Look Up!

NYC Sunset

IMPRESSIONS: 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…

Work Smart

New Home

Q&A: I have a small financial advisory firm based in New York City and I just bought a house in Philadelphia to lower my cost structure. I have decided to keep my New York office… commute in three days a week and work from my new home two days. How can I manage my schedule so I still grow the business, have a social life (I am single) and not burn out!
