dressed in holiday style

soon
 the
morning skies
 will be lighter 
when i leave for the office

 with the longer commute
 i leave a few minutes earlier
 i suspect
 i won't see 
the change
 til 
i get downtown

 right now
 the city
 is 
getting its holiday on

 the tree
 in
 rockefeller center
 was
 lit 
wednesday night

 the tree
 in
 lincoln center
 here 
on the upper westside
 was 
lit 
monday night

 many 
of
 the
 businesses and hotels
 along
 upper broadway
 are
wrapping 
the
trees 
along their streets
with lights

 dressing their facades
 as well

 in a way
 my morning walk
 is
 already
 brighter
 lighter

  2. I agree with Cloudia! It must be fabulous to be able to see it every single morning! Holiday decorations are beautiful! Sets the mood for the day...don't you think??

  3. NYC is so pretty during the holidays!

    Love how the streets look glowy because of the rain.

  4. I can imagine how beautiful it is. I really like the glow on your photo. Please continue to share because I'm sure there is nothing like NYC over the holidays.

  5. I see what you mean. Actually, that's a fantastic result for the darkest month, isn't it? Mom was complaining bitterly yesterday. She lives in a neighbourhood of very expensive houses, and the new house across the street just had a professional company come hang the Xmas lights and it's lit up like daylight all night. Oh she was spitting nails about it! (even though her bedroom faces in completely the opposite direction.) I guess you can have too much of a good thing.

  7. There are 2 things that have to happen to really get me into Christmas mode.

    1. Seeing the tree be lit in Rockefeller Center (I watch it on TV).
    2. Watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas (every year since I was a child).

    Yup, I'm in Christmas mode!!! xo.
