We rode a rail to the very edge and found the ability to see forever...
Part One: Observation
Playland ,Queens, NY
Oaxaca meets Rockaway,Albany meets NYC,Brooklyn meets LA,urban meets suburban,fashion meets outback,the city meets the beach and the best fish tacos in town!"that's how we roll" L.S.http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/12/dining/reviews/12brief-002.html
Our journey took us to the edge of the land where the sky meets the water and allowed us to truly see,hear and feel what surrounds and defines us,the infinite possibilities and the abundance of resources in this wonderful city;here and now.
This seemingly random trail was cut to laser precision by Larry Santoyo. It shed the rethoric of preconceived notions and self imposed limitations.
Everyone had the opportunity to step up and participate outside of their comfort zone and did. 14 strangers sat together and talked,eat,drink and shared our stories. We did nothing;which allowed each of us to exercise our skill sets in recognizing the abundance of human resources available at the table,for "if we can't even talk to each other,how could we expect to move forward" L.S.
Part Two: Application
