“Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented,Tell me I’m cute,
Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise,
Tell me I’m perfect -
But tell me the truth.”
The Travel Theme this week is graceful.
The Weekly Photo Challenge is orange.
“He looked like an Italian, was dressed like an Englishman, and had the independent air of an American–a combination which caused sundry pairs of feminine eyes to look approvingly after him, and sundry dandies in black velvet suits, with rose-colored neckties, buff gloves, and orange flowers in their buttonholes, to shrug their shoulders, and then envy him his inches.”
Louisa May Alcott
My first orange is here.
My second orange is over here.

If you are in the area just a reminder that “Lighthouse Stories and Tales Of the Sea” opens at the National Lighthouse Museum tomorrow. Reception from 1pm-5pm. Just steps from the Ferry! I don’t know whose image is on the card but I like it.
Now I realize that most of my fellow New Yorkers and Northeasterners are a bit tired of the winter. I am not. I think it has been a brutal winter but in NYC it has been cold but not that snowy. Today we actually got a bunch of snow (6″-8″, I believe) and for the first time all winter I was able to go for a walk in the storm. Sadly they closed the walkway over the George Washington Bridge. I’m not sure if that was because of the storm or because not 1 but 2 people jumped off it yesterday. One from the lower deck after exiting his car and a few minutes later, one from the upper deck after exiting his bike. However I got to tramp around in the woods and then walk the greenway down to 155th Street.
One of the many things I like about NYC is that you can find “wilderness”/country inside the city. So this fits Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Environment and for me it was a Reward to do this which is the theme of the Weekly Photo Challenge.
As always…click the pic to make it full size.
Here was my first reward
