I try to eat for health only the large majority of the time, as I'm quite overweight and on cholesterol and triglyceride medication too, and remissing from nearly developing Diabetes.
Additionally, as you might glean from the type of center I'm going to, I try to eat for health, not for taste. More additionally, I don't eat meat outside of chicken and turkey such as fish, steak, etc.
A slice of pizza now and then is really the only exception I make on my diet outside of the house, but tomorrow is not the day; I've gained a considerable amount of weight this year and need to buckle down (I've been walking two hours a day several times a week in that vein). And outside of an event like this I'm rarely in the WTC area.
However, my city experience outside of the two destinations I'll be visiting in Manhattan instead of food will be taking it all in on the F train through Queens into Jamaica and either the Q43 or Nassau bus on the way back home.
I guess I should say the events themselves will be an experience too; I'm looking forward to the meditation just as much as the other -- but you think Stone street has fags, try that center and the other.
I don't know how I'll react at the ceremony, I'm rarely very emotional but a thing like this has to put some kind of reaction in your mind. If you couldn't tell from the info above, I'm a Long Island boy and though I spend a lot of time in Queens, skyscrapers and the massive void and air of destruction and death that at least used to permeate the site, if not so much anymore, are not the norm here. There's something big about it.
