NEW YORK RUSH HOUR: An Angel Message

Recently I found myself swept away by this amazing RUSH HOUR, NEW YORK CITY 1953 postcard. At the corner of  E. 42nd Street,  photographer, Louis Goldman's high speed camera settings gave me pause.  He seemed to capture the light vibration of fast paced pedestrians crossing the bustling intersection at the traffic light!

Curious about the famous photographer, I learned that Louis Goldman had written an autobiography, Friends for Life. The amazing story of how he and his brother, along with their parents, had traversed Europe, just barely keeping ahead of the Nazis.  Exhausted, and without any money, their only I.D. stamped JUIF, they had to make a treacherous journey over the Italian Alps to gain freedom from the allies.  His book is a tribute to a group of Italians who for two years risked their own lives to save the Jews during that long trek.  Louis eventually emigrated to America, and became one of Hollywood's foremost film still-photographers.

I look forward to reading Friends for Life.  During these times of racial divide, it's nice to be reminded of the innate goodness of human beings.

Looking at his RUSH HOUR postcard, it's easy to see that no matter what the outer garment may look like, we are all of the same spiritual essence within.  Spiritual beings having a physical experience.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,
