I went up to my roof last night and I took these pictures. This is the view of the East side of downtownish Manhattan.  Tonight, this will be the sight of a fireworks display. In case you didn’t know- my little piece of the world hosts a pyrotechnic display every July 4 (another holiday brought to you by the folks at Macy’s)

All was quiet last night, and all is quiet now.  But in a few hours…

So what am I trying to say?  I honestly have no idea.  But I guess, if I had to put it into words: embrace the fireworks when they happen.  Embrace the unknown and the unexpected.  Figure out how to make passion a part of your life.

Calm is wonderful- we need it.  But fireworks- well we need that too…

And always- remember the Men and Women who fight to protect our freedom and liberty.  Remember those who put their lives on the line to help others.

  1. Great pictures! And I agree, we can’t really celebrate our freedom without honoring those who gave it to us in the first place, as well as those who continue to sacrifice so that we can keep it.
