{ times square tourists }

As a new yorker 
it's easy to hate times sqaure

It's always crowded with tourists 
and one of the perks of living here 
is a diet free of chain restaurants

But on my way home tonight 
I started looking around at all the tourists 
snapping photos of the famed city lights.

Such excitement and awe on their faces.

It made me happy.

Times Square is still not my favorite spot in New York 
but I'm going to look at it differently now...
through the eyes of a tourist
here for the very first time.

Because there is excitement and happiness in that 
and a life filled with awe and wonder and first times is a happy life.
