“Sunday morning, rain is falling”

It’s a cold day in nyc today.

Plus, rain is falling.

I didn’t pack for all possible seasons,

so I’ve layered on thick cotton black tights underneath my chiffon floor length skirt.

Still freezing, I’ve taken cover at a French pastry shop nearby called, “financier patisserie.” I plan on staying here a while.. People watching.. Drinking a cappuccino… Staying warm.

“on the corner of Leonard”

If your out and about on a beautiful day in NYC, the Square Diner is where its at.

It offers a narrow row of outside tables that share the sidewalk with ongoing pedestrians. Brunch and lunch is served all day. I had the homemade French onion soup and it was delicious. The best part of it, my bill was 4.25.

“a moment of reflection”

Just another beautiful day in the windy city.

all is full of sunshine and clear skies.

A Random side note,

my bracelet belonged to my great grandmother. When she was younger, she spent a lot of time at the horse tacks. It was there that an older man carved two of these bracelets from wood for her. The entire piece is handmade. Now they’re my favorite little treasures.

“city people”

“My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here.” -O. Winfrey.

It seems that you can find out more about a person in an hour of snapshots than in a year of conversation.

“off into a far”

But I’ll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything. -A. Watts.
