Today’s Slice of Life in the Big Apple

apple_bitten_dan_gerhard_01 It’s not rotten, it’s just that a gigantic bite has been taken out of it, before you got to it. Or got enough of it. Stores are closing left and right along Madison Avenue. The ones still open have sales signs in the windows – for the Spring season. AIG bonuses? You’re for ’em or agin ’em, but you’ve got one strong opinion one way or the other, none of it good. Layoffs. Anxiety. No matter how you slice it, the mood in the city right now isn’t such a good one. But there are two ways to come at this:
#1: Enough of winter and all this…The buds are barely on the trees. OR
#2: It’s almost spring…The trees are starting to bud.
Give it a shot, take a breath and choose route #2. Because today people were soaking up the sun at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in coats and gloves and crowds and green and hope.
