ahendyOn Saturday morning, my grandpa, Robert Livingston Steiner, passed away at the age of 90.
I owe so much to him--I wouldn't be where I am today without his help, support and encouragement. He understood my passions and dreams, and always did what he could to help me accomplish them.
My last moment with him was spent teaching him how to compose emails on his iPhone, in his office, in his favorite place in the world--Hilton Beach. He struggled with typing, but I assured him it would get easier with time. He responded, "well, Andy, I'm inclined to believe you.." Everything gets easier with time. This will too. Love you, grandpa.4mon
ahendyThis weekend I shot with my new most prized possession. A camera that I've dreamed of owning for years.
Very few things are more rewarding than accomplishing a goal that once seemed completely unrealistic. Hard work pays off.5mon

ahendyThe 102-story Empire State Building actually has it's own zip code to accommodate the 1,000 business within, with over 21,000 employees total. It is the second largest office complex in the USA, second only to the Pentagon.6mon
ahendyTonight, at the base of the Tribute In Light, I met a man named Bakar. He had me take his picture in front of the memorial, and explained to me that his birthday is on 9/11/1943. On the day of the attacks, he was working for a company that had offices in the WTC and also in a building across the street. He happened to be working that day in the building across the street, avoiding what would've been almost certain death on his birthday. He lost 150 coworkers, and comes back every year to pay tribute to those that he knew and loved. Cherish the minutes you are here, no matter how many or how few. Life is really about the people and the experiences in it. Enjoy them all.6mon
