As a teen (back in the days of Eastern Airlines wings), I frequently visited NYC. My childhood friend and her family lived in New Jersey, and our families often combined summers. I have very vivid memories of racing up and down the steps of Lady Liberty. Oh, the days when you could do that freely without security checks. To this city girl, New York will always be a second home.

Although I spent many summers there and visited with my husband and children during the holidays, I’ve always dreamt of an autumn in New York birthday …
a la When Harry Met Sally.
I don’t think the colors will be there like they used to be Octobers ago, but
. we’ll be there
plane tickets, check
opera tickets, check
broadway tickets, check
neutrals, neutrals, neutrals, check, check, check
Trip’s still a few weeks away,, so I think I’ll take a little posting break and enjoy the planning.
Back in a New York minute.
crowns that get messy
all that is life

and i think to myself
what a WONDERful LOVE
september garden notes
butter yellow has me spellbound
succulents given new life
lovely muted bromeliads call out to me
“Goodbye,” said the fox.
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“What is essential is invisible to the eye,” the little prince repeated, so that he would be sure to remember.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
every fear and foe
look it in the eye

see what happens when you finally fly
crush the fear of man beneath your feet
remember Whose you are!
I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart…
thinking back to st croix
to so much overcome this year
thank you, Father
making the garden presentable again
succulents fared well
potting bench and flowers not so well
autumn in florida
a second gentler summer
did i mention that i’m loving the simplicity of phone pics these days
feeling good coppery vibes
sometimes i am
sometimes i’m not
and it’s all good
because at 55 you no longer need to make the girls’ club
let’s try that again…
because there comes a time when we must give up the struggle to meet the approval of others
“It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good”
Embrace the process and don’t be so hard on yourself, BEaUtiful child. ♥️
