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!!
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 ...no 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!
