Last week I was in New York City. Since I have been to NYC so many times I am pretty comfortable. Although the crowds still get to me. I had a little breakdown on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty. The people, the noise were just too confusing to me.
I wasn't on my own too much while in the city. But one of the problems I have chronicled here is having a problem crossing the streets. The signals are confusing for me. Since there is little consistency in Walk Lights, I get confused. I think the blinking of the walk light in conjunction with the traffic signals, the traffic noise and all the people is overload on my brain. So, I do better when I am with someone to cross the street than on my own.
Despite my problems, I still enjoyed the trip.
Thanks to all for the birthday wishes. My son turns 30 today. That makes me feel old. But I am glad I am still able to spend some quality time, as I know down the road it won't be as easy.
Two speaking gigs this week -- a class at the University of Georgia and a retirement community in Northeast Georgia.
Thanks for reading and keeping up with me.
