The family expansion...

Here it is, aside from my half sister, whom I don't really know, my family has added a new member, branch and level. Our small spread out group has created a new tab, the next generation ...and he is beautiful. Sure, sure, that is what every blood relative says of the new members, but it's true. He's delightful. He screams and gurgles and lolls his head around and we love him all the more for it. Life and love have changed for me, and it's a great place to be.

Subway system...

It's really extraordinary, the amount of time that I spend walking to trains, waiting for them to arrive and then riding them. This is one of many subway platform views that I see on a regular basis (read: everyday), and although I am a big fan of public transportation ...and really do like the above ground platform more than the below ground one, I am really looking forward to sitting behind the wheel of a car!!

Thanksgiving squared!

It's been a very long time since I have uploaded anything to this sight and I guess that a second Thanksgiving post is the perfect way for re-introduction. I have spent the last year in New York City. It has been testing and frustrating. I have learned things about myself that I would have never learned any other way. I have stuggled and been frantic and lonely and yet had days where I drank coffee out in front of the store and quietly enjoyed the sunlight hitting the West Village in front of me. My friends from home have pushed their way to the surface and shown me that we are a different breed of people with different wants and needs, and my friends here have been supportive, though vague and absent at times. This city really forces you into self involvement.

That being said I would like to welcome you back to my blog ...which I hope to be more attentive to from now on city=more time.

These photos were taken walking through Central Park directly after the Thanksgiving parade! Though the parade was fun and things were floating, I felt that the park was prettier, with just the right bit of calm and color and at times that is what we need more of!
Happy Holidays! xoxo!

Thanksgiving entertainment

For the beginning of 'holiday '08' I ventured out onto the Brooklyn Bridge. Seems about time since I have lived here for 5 months and only live about an 8 minute walk from it. So here is my touristy photo tour of Thanksgiving. And for those of you who are aware of my fear of hights (which is large) I didn't make it all the way across.

The Magical Met..

I finally made it to the Metropolitan Museum for a little, much needed, inspiration and here is what I came back with.
