A yoga teacher once told me that waiting at a traffic light is a great opportunity for meditation and calm reflection. Accordingly, I want to thank the city planners for the dual traffic lights on Harrison Avenue at 35th and 36th Streets. Over the years, I have enjoyed abundant opportunities for introspection and relaxation at these lights, where time stands still, undisturbed by traffic in any direction, a peaceful interlude in my daily routine. Namaste!
