i spent friday with them 
more photos to come!

its raining as i write this


its a dismal 
sunday
 but 
i can reach back
 to 
friday
 and
 share 
the fire island lighthouse
which
 is
 actually
 at the edge
 of 
robert moses state park



as you can see
 these gulls


 had the beach pretty much to themselves

i spy ...


i love 
looking
 at the 
opposite track or platform 
when we get to times square 

if you're like me 
sometimes
you might
 imagine
 you
 can
 hear 
rhapsody in blue

the other evening i was watching something on the tube
it sparked an idea a thought that was too long to be a tweet
i was going to blog about it 
i definitely intended to
of course
by tmorning
 i had totally forgotten

from now on
if 
 something
random
 tickles my muse

 i'magonna write it down


happy birthday, America!





uncle sam sez 
dont let the dud in the white house get you down


we're still a nation of decent caring people

work in progress


love 
this pop art portion
 of 
the new art covered
 construction wall 
surrounding
 the next addition
 to
 the
 world trade center complex

subway series


in nyc
in the summertime
people prefer to stand 
even when there are seats

why

because 
personal space

but
in the winter
when we're bundled up
we squeeeeeze 
into seats
shoulder to shoulder

maybe to keep warm
maybe
 because
 all those clothes
create a layer of protection
or 
maybe
the extra layers
protect
 that 
vulnerable 
personal space
