A Walk Around New York: Storytelling (Series)


My favorite exercise will always be to explore New York City on foot. No trains. No buses. No taxis. No headphones. Cellphone in my pocket. Bringing my camera as my perfect solo companion and holding hands with my curiosity. Being comfortable with your own company is the best gift. I had a friend who used to complain a lot about how boring it was to wait or walk alone around this beautiful city. I smile in front of those comments. How could anyone be bored? Don’t they see art? Architecture? Human interactions telling hidden stories with their body languages, different accents, and eye contact? The chaotic noise? Which could be music or bad poetry depending on what we are looking for?

The problem is that we are all looking down. Looking down to the world -problems & despair. Looking down on people -emotions & egos. Looking down on a cellphone -slavery of our time. Let’s try turning off the cellphone on a weekend morning for just one hour. Buy yourself a camera. Join the “crazy crowd” by walking alone without headphones and start looking up. Who knows? You might discover new things about you, many stories about others and new places. Just make sure to start wearing comfortable shoes because once you find the comfort of exploring on your own then it will become a habit.
