12-11-16 NYC First Snow

It started snowing late this afternoon while I was at a meeting in midtown.  The meeting was on the east side. This meant that I had to walk cross town through Rockefeller Center where there where only 8 gazillion people out to see the tree.

Very pretty evening though…

1-2-15 New Sparkle

If you see something that looks like a star
And it’s shooting up out of the ground
And your head is spinning from a loud guitar
And you just can’t escape from the sound
Don’t worry too much, it’ll happen to you
We were children once, playing with toys
And the thing that you’re hearing is only the sound of
The low spark of high-heeled boys

Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood

The weekly challenge is New

The Travel Theme is sparkle

How often have we seen a shot like this ending some apocalyptic movie and heralding the NEW dawn of a SPARKLING bright day on a reborn planet where somehow only the good things and animals/people survived.

8-3-12 Escape From New York

20120804-165245.jpg

Abigail and I hit the road today on a journey to Cape Cod. Katherine and Abigail’s friend, Caroline, join us tomorrow. As always, traffic in Connecticut was beyond hideous – it always is – as was the traffic approaching the Bourne Bridge. But who cares we ended up in Wellfleet with Abigail’s grandparents. What could be better.
