There is a bronze mural on the side wall of the fire station at Ground Zero dedicated to the fallen heroes and those left standing. I couldn’t help but shed a few tears; it’s an eery feeling to remember the devastation and horror of 9/11.
Denise and I spent the day as tourists in Manhattan, and after a few solemn moments of reflection, returned to contributing to the economy at the Century 21 discount store – "NY’s best kept secret." Denise wore a step counter, and 8,000 steps later we returned to our trendy hotel.
The BlogHer Business conference was a big success, and I’ll share a few nuggets with you over on our Build a Better Blog. We had a blogger get together at the Champagne Flute, an old speakeasy, thanks to CK, of Marketing Prof’s book club last night. It’s so much fun to meet face-to-face with other fun bloggers.
I have many fond memories of NYC… when I was a fashion model and part of the party set! Now I’m just lucky to get back to the hotel without blisters. We’re having sunny days, but cold. There was even some snow piled on the ground down at the Seaport Exhibition Center, where we saw the Bodies exhibit.
Now that’s something to see… every imaginable part of the body dissected and dyed for easy viewing. What an education. The most beautiful parts were those of the blood vessel system, dye red, of course, and looking very much like sea anemone.
The most surprising was the brain and brain parts. As an avid student of the brain, I found it to be smaller than I expected. It’s quite small.
We’re skipping the theatre – too many loud musicals, not my cup of tea. Perhaps a quiet evening catching up with email and blogging instead. Hope you’re having a great weekend, be well.
