Returning to the old, allows one to reflect on who they were, where they have gone, and how they have changed. Has that ever happened to you? Have you revisited your past? For most it's therapeutic, for others it's lots of fun, especially when you run into people you haven't seen in a long time, and you are proud of who you are and how your life has unfolded. Such is the case for all my children.
My three daughters and their families visited me in Brooklyn today, enjoying the sights and sounds of areas that were part of their childhood experiences. Much of today was spent at the Third Avenue Street Festival here in Bay Ridge, a scenic area in which the Verrazano Bridge sweep over the skyline like a giant archway to the other side.
Like many people, from time to time my children like to return to Brooklyn to reminisce with their families. How quickly time flies. Brooklyn has come a long way. Rather than assume that local neighborhoods have deteriorated, most are being renovated and upscaled, as new generations grow up and restore the old buildings, often left crumbling as former tenants die off. These are the cycles of time.
Everywhere you go in NYC, one can find evidence of improvement, slowly, but surely. People work on their environment and themselves ... the self help aspect of the journey and an outer reflection of the inner essence of soul. This includes the mind, (therapists, counselors, support groups, etc.) the body (yoga, pilates, working out, nutrition, etc.) and the soul (Reiki and other forms of spiritual and psychic awakening) of the city and its people.
