taking some time out…..in Dallas, Texas

IMG_3255

take 3……on the plane leaving NYC, I looked down to my lap and realized a couple of things.

1.what a quintessential “new york moment” i was having with the coffee, bagel and New York Post.  2. The heading of the article “Rough Start.” Completely feeling mixed emotions as I left NYC this week. I’m leaving because I have to for a few weeks, not because I want too. Sometimes, you need to leave in order to come back and start again. Kind of like walking away from a problem and coming back with a fresh perspective, and solving it with a clear head. Yep, I’m kind of having to do the same thing. Yet, this is a little tougher and bigger of a situation. So…..while I’m in my temporary home, I will be blogging (some of my sightseeing) to take my mind off New York.

DALLAS – The Sixth Floor Museum – Dealey Plaza (President Kennedys assassination site)
