Lotus Moments

Lotus Moment: Above And Beyond

Hearst HQ

Why This Is Awesome: I've been told that I'm not a very optimistic person. Which is fine by me because I'd rather be a realist than an optimist, but there are rare moments when I do try my best to look on the bright side of life. After attending a perfectly disappointing networking event last week on E. 57th St., I made my way back home feeling more than a little despondent.

As I waited for the light to change so I could cross to the other side, I turned around and looked up. Literally. I looked up. Only to see the Hearst media headquarters looming over me. As a writer and editor (and architecture geek), can I just say how much I love the Hearst tower!? Aesthetically, it's just a brilliant combination of history and ingenuity. Metaphorically, it's a reminder that all hope is not lost and perhaps, if I'm persistent, something truly amazing lies ahead.
