I snagged this shot while walking past the Fox News building in Manhattan on May 21, 2011. It was pure luck, I happened to look up and saw the news headline regarding the apocalypse, or rather lack thereof. If you know me, I almost always have my phone at the ready to take a photo. I was quite happy that I caught it at this exact point, “it did not end…Preach”. True, it went on to say “Preacher” around the corner, but the timing here could not have been better for this day. I recall people being actually concerned over this nonsense. I even remember some being surprised I was leaving the house, and of all places going to New York City. Don’t worry, I had many retorts to such comments.
With the possibility of end-times happening again tomorrow, I thought this quite fitting to post today. Funny enough, I’ll be headed into New York for another supposed end-of-the-world. Cue the R.E.M., once more! Although, my daughter has been sure to tell everyone that the Mayans did not factor leap years into their estimations, so based on their calculations, the end would have occurred months ago. I’m relieved. See you all tomorrow, all being well, I suppose.
