It was warm, quiet, and tastefully decorated, as you can see in this photo I snapped with my iPhone. I welcomed the atmosphere in the midst of a fifth avenue busy with shoppers and more colorful decorations.
It invited quiet reflection. I also noticed something else there -- without the use of smartphones inside, people were making eye contact.
Technology is great. It allows me to be in touch with my family even when I'm not physically with them. Nothing can ever beat the human touch.
Have a Merry Christmas.
