Running to the Future


“I was looking out of the window in New York and everybody was rushing around, almost running. Everybody seemed to be in a state of intense nervous tension, anxiety. It’s suffering, really, but it’s not recognized as suffering. And I thought, where are they all running to? And of course, they are all running to the future. They are needing to get somewhere, which is not here. It is a point in time: not now—then. They are running to a then. They are suffering, but they don’t even know it.”

Eckhart Tolle

Little Italy Street Art

The streets of Little Italy NYC were packed tonight and the place was buzzing with tourists, restaurant goers and street vendors. We were invited to a birthday party at a bar nearby, but I was more interested in sneaking out and photographing some of the amazing murals and art around the area. Little Italy has really turned into a hot spot for artists to showcase what they have to offer.
