really
 truly
 thank goddess its friday

 what a week

 i am finally not exhausted
 that
 is
 saying a lot

 i do plan on sleeping in saturday morning
 i am going to close the door to the cats
 i dont care
 how much
 they 
wail or scratch at the door

 i am sleeping as late as i possibly can

 so there 

 i discovered
 a shorter way home

 going 
to the office 
in
 the morning
 i dont mind
 the 
walk 
from
 chambers at west broadway
 its 3 or 4 blocks
 its direct 
a straight line 
i like that

 going home
 in
 the evening
 that walk
 seems a lot longer 

thursday
 it rained all day
 fortunately
 both 
my
 to and from 
did not happen
 during
 down pours

 the entrance to the subway at chambers 
is 
on both sides of the street
 so 
as 
i walk 
if the light is red uptown
 i cross to the opposite side of the street

 are you following
 my disjointed train of thought here
 there is a point

 thursday evening 
as 
i walked 
the light changed 
so
 i crossed west broadway
 kept walking north
 as
 i got to park place
 i thought
 lets see
 where
 the subway station is

 so
 i walked up the street
there at the next corner 
was
 the subway entrance
 down
 the stairs
 i went

 followed the signs
 to
 the 2 and 3 trains
 its a bit confusing
 but
 i found my way 

i ended up
 on the platform 
where 
the front
 the first car 
of 
the uptown train 
would 
stop

 and

 its a stop
 below
 chambers
 which means
 there's a better chance 
of
 getting a seat

 yeah me
 i got a seat 

what do you call the driver of the train?
 its not the conductor 
the engineer?
 is it the engineer?
 anyway 
whatever
 he or she is called 
they had a heavy foot 

we sped uptown
 really 
it was the fastest
 its been all week
 i left the office at 4:30ish
 got out of the subway at 72nd street
 at just before 5 

yeah me



ok
 the windows are in need of a washing
 the rain did not help
 thats
 the south reflecting pool
 and
 the triangle-ish building
 is 
the 9/11 memorial museum

 those trees are gorgeous 

i hope that i can get a better photo 
with
 less reflection
 soon
 it was pretty awesome
 when the fog rolled in thursday afternoon
 it was a total white out
 i didnt even attempt a photo 
because
 all you could see was a reflection
 of
 the inside of my office 
which 
you've already seen

  1. That's great! There are whole new worlds for you to discover. The world of getting home and the world of what's below you. Lucky girl.

    It usually helps me to put the camera lens right up against the window, but then the scope of the photo is limited.

  2. I don't know about the train and all that stuff, but getting home quickly sounds good.
    The view, oh my gosh, so incredibly awesome.

  3. The footprint of the old tower in the reflecting pool is rather poignant.
