I remembered when I younger, one of my favorite things to do would be to play in the rain with my friends. Against our parents’ wishes, we would rush outside at the very faint sound of impacting raindrops. We would waddle in mud, kick dirty rain water at each other and play outside until the rain stops. Thanks to my unusually strong immune system, I never got sick from being out in the rain. Some of my friends, on the other hand, weren’t so lucky.
I was flying back home from a business trip back to New York City.
I was feeling homesick and was happy to see home- home from the sky that is!
I felt happiness, free and liberated as I looked out my airplane window, I had to capture an amazing pic of NY - a place I call home. And just as important, I wanted to capture the Freedom Tower which stands1,776 feet tall where the former World Trade Center stood tall.
pretty amazing pic I must say :)
A city full of art!
Every year SEED hosts an artwork competition that showcases the talented young men and women from our SEED Schools! I am lucky enough to be able to see this artwork come into the SEED office all summer and I admire how gifted these students are!
Recently, I felt that I should try something new so I tried rowing. I thought rowing would be fun, and a workout. The sport was off to a bad start. For the first lesson, I was attacked by mosquitos, and warned that there are alligators in the water. I'm not going to lie the thought of seeing alligators appealed to me, but then I began to worry because there is a possibility that some people might end up in the water (mucky).
Welcome to the Hoover Dam.
A marvel of Engineering, and the Human Spirit...
I had a chance to go visit the Hoover Dam last weekend and was amazed by its history and location.
It was a really windy day and one could observe the difficulty the builders had at that time. Many of them died during the building phase.
With work, school, children, parents, or whatever you might have going on, sometimes we forget to stop and look around us.
A few weekends ago we made a trip to Pedernales Falls State Park near Austin, TX.
It was nice to get away from the busy city life and explore the nature.
I always hated math. It just did not speak to me. Too absract, useless, decoupled from the reality. I was a victim of the modern math fashion trend of the early 70's. And natural sciences spoke to me a lot more.
