helsinki meets nyc

i met
 a woman
 a photographer

 i was drawn to her photos
 endless snow

 her chronicle of
 walking to work
 in the dark
 did i mention
 there was a lot of snow

 the snow melted
 i could not understand
 how it melted without flooding
 she says
 its due to the hundreds of lakes

 her spring and summer photos 
her garden
 all the veggies
 all the flowers
 so lovely

 when i heard she was coming to nyc
 i said
 we must get together
 she agreed

 we met at polished beauty bar
 for mani/pedis
 lots of chat
 by brunch 
at a new-iwsh restaurant
nice brunch menu
 a french country theme
 i cannnot remember the name
 its on amsterdam at 83rd


 i googled
 its called
good food
 good chat
 it was a really lovely time
 i look forward to her visiting again in the spring
