This week's Tuesday Tweeter isn't actually a person per say, (although there are caretakers of the Twitter feed), but is probably the most well known and photographed structures in the world.  Loads of tourists flock to New York City's 34th Street and 5th Avenue every day to photograph this boss architecture spanning 1,454 feet from the top of the antenna to the street.  Even the average New Yorker will be caught playing tourist every now and then, (in our case a lot), taking a snap or two.

One of the special traits of this building is that depending on the event, the lights at the top of the building are colored to reflect the holiday or event.  So, for those who aren't football savvy, The Empire State Building made it quite easy for those to keep up and to always know who is winning.  I will say, that the structure was lit up in navy blue and neon green for most of Sunday night.  Although, there was a peak of Navy blue and orange to detect that one small piece of Broncos action.  

Cruising 34th Street last night, around the time the Seahawks touched down at SeaTac Airport to helicopters and many fans awaiting to welcome their pride and joy home with applause, our landmark here in NY was still lit in that blue and neon green.

No matter which angle of the field you look at it...













And we have so many more shots to share..  
But for now, you can follow the Empire State Building here:

RATING:
FIVE STARS

Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

Second To The Right

Second To The Right by Zach Neuman
Genre: Fantasy Rating 5 Stars

To the other orphans, it was paradise.  To David, it was a prison.  Behind the dark walls and black bars where Latin might as well have been the official language, David knew that his fate was sealed with a seal that he knew he had to break and break quickly.  He was determined to see the sunlight that was being blocked by the walls of St. Augustine's.  Father Kenneth gave him the throttle for his plan to escape - to take off.
What lay outside of those walls he was trapped behind was an unforgiving world to which he would have to learn new skills in order to survive.  Skills which in his wildest dreams he never thought he would never have to learn, nor use.
What was most enjoyable about this book is the fact that the story about David's determination relates to many aspects of some of my personal life journeys.  Some of these journeys I have written about before, others, I will leave to your imagination as to what t…
