I don't know why this film came to mind when I was talking about my situation at the time. My birthday had passed and the one person who I was hoping would remember, didn't. Trying to remain optimistic, I thought that maybe there was some misunderstanding; an undelivered email or text to explain this and as I was talking about it I had said, what if this is like this film of the couple agreeing to meet at the top of the Empire State Building but who never do because of an unfortunate accident? I couldn't think of the name of the film but my friend knew it and in the same week surprised me with the video and I watched it over the weekend.
As it turns out, I had never seen the film. I only knew the story behind it. You can't be a romantic at heart and not know it :) Two people meet and have a strong connection but are engaged to other people. They decide to meet on top of the Empire State Building six months later, after they end their current relationships and if one doesn't show up they agree to leave it as is. While watching the film, I couldn't believe how similar their feelings resonated with mine. They had a sweet and pure relationship. As the movie progressed and the accident occurred and Nick waited sadly on top of the Empire State Building while Terry was fighting for her life, I was worried, I didn't know if they'd end up together and I was hoping they would, as if their fate would also be mine as well. (I was in a vulnerable place at the time) The point is that it brought me to this beautiful, heartwarming film and it's now part of my dvd collection.
It also gave me a great idea.
July 1st, 5pm (this is the day/time they had decided to meet) this friday
One day I will make my way to New York and go up there with my camera and discreetly watch for any other romantic souls waiting to meet up there. Life does imitate film sometimes. Or I wonder if I'd find someone else like me with the same idea? Under the same circumstances I would do the same thing. And if they didn't show up, it better be because they were in an
accident!! ha ha! But nowadays we have cellphones so that kills it all.
These pictures were taken from the top of the Duomo in Florence.
You can always meet here.
It was quite a hike going up these steps, 463 to be exact!
Hopefully, 463 reasons why you love the person you are meeting up there!!
I like this spot right here.
