Big Apple: Energy. Motion. Life. Purpose.

Been in NYC only a few short hours and I feel like I'm visiting an alien planet. I come from a state (Wyoming) that has as many residents in it as a couple blocks here does. There is so much dynamic energy with do many moving parts. So many people hurrying to wherever it is they're going. So many stories bring told all around me. It is like a beautifully composed symphony of sound, lights, and motion.

I'm wonderfully overwhelmed.
