Wednesdays are my day off and outside of the mundane errands one does on their “weekend”, I’ve tried to incorporate something fun. Of late, it has been a lot of museum hopping. Brooklyn Museum, Guggenheim, The Met, The Frick and so on viewing the various shows and exhibits currently on display. Yesterday, with definite Spring in the air, I wandered to Brooklyn Bridge Park to see Siah Armajani’s “Bridge over Tree“.
The piece “invites us to experience the idea of a bridge in a new way. In a world of walls and barriers, what does it mean to create points of connection, to establish relationships among different things, to invite interaction, and to build a bridge between the world and the poetic imagination?”
As I walked the inside of the bridge, the beauty of the tree was invisible. I only saw the angles and shadows the structure created. It’s when I stepped away, created a little space, that I saw the beauty that was there all along. So often in life we only see the rough edges and never the real beauty that lies beneath. It’s important to take some time out to discover that beauty. My Wednesdays are like that. I create some space to not only see the beauty that others have created, but also the beauty that lies within me.
Once again, I have the great honor of leading a weekend retreat in conjunction with the beloved NY Loves Yoga community in a beautiful house in the Pocono Mountains. Join me June 14 – 16 for a powerful weekend when we’ll create some space to rediscover the beauty that lies within. You’ll leave with tools to navigate the challenges of life in the immediate and throughout your life. Limited spots remain. Click here for more details.
