More Encounters Along The Way – The Happening March 14 2010
On March 13, MiamiToNewYork arrived at 30th St. Station Philadelphia. It was a planned stop to regroup, reload, recharge, re-organize and review What Happened so far.
A Happening took place in the Meeting House Spring City PA. at precisly 8 PM March 14, 2010. This was in preparation to get back on board AMTRAK on March 16 to arrive at the mass exiting at 34 & 7th, and the mass street crossing at The Pennsylvania Station ( “You Leave The Pa Station ‘bought quarter to four, read a magazine, then you’re in Baltimore, dinner in a diner, nothing could be finer, than to have your Ham n Eggs, in North Caroliner…”) at 8:30 AM March 16, 2010…in order to film the “Wait For Me” video that has since gone viral on You-Tube (7000 hits in one month). From there, the Beyond portion of Miami To New York…and Beyond started with an Air Lingus flight to Ireland. We landed at 11: 50 P M on March 16 2010, NY-Phila time; and 4:50 AM March 17, St Patrick’s Daytime in Dublin and 2 hours drive away :Waterford, home of Artist Sean Corcoran. Sean promised me I could be in The Waterford St. Patrick’s Day Parade. We’ll have to see about that.
At The Happening, M2NY previewed the 5 hours of video of AMTRAK’s SILVER STAR Cruising past America, that AMTRAK was kind enough, & perceptive enough, to allow us film from the rear window of the caboose (last car) of the train.
This was shown in The Meeting House on a 12 foot square projection screen. Mike Giorgio (of White Collar fame) was our hero. Mike’s technical & mechanical expertise permitted Mike to make it look easy to set up the 12 foot square monster stand alone screen, connect & re-organize the computers to accomplish The Preview. Mary DiGuiseppe graced the event with her poise, charm & beauty. Check her out in the photos. Elijah Anderson brought the digital camera & preserved the event.
