The Big Apple Through Winter Eyes…


Last month, I happily decided to not travel and simply sit still for a bit in New York City.  One of the hardest things about being on the road is that I’m never rooted, I sort of feel like I’m flapping around in the wind.  A month of anchoring myself back to New York City was just what I needed. I dug out my old journals to try to remind myself of what started me on this journey in the first place.  Reading them has been eye opening and a bit disturbing.  But it’s fascinating stuff to take in.  Sometimes I’m amazed at how we don’t really change much over time, we just forget what we were like over time.

The Big Apple is beautiful any time of year – some shots to demonstrate my point.

Like a classic beauty that looks gorgeous even without makeup, Poets Walk in #centralpark park is beautiful at any time of year.

I’m a sucker for nostalgia. Out of all of the balloons #Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang will always get my vote for favorite! What an amazing vantage point for the #macysparade this morning in #NYC

#NYC commute. I’m pretty happy I can be a spectator in the commuting game everyday. It can actually look beautiful from a distance.

Isn’t it fun when you are the tallest on the block? #oneworldtradecenter


I love staring down at the layers of Moma – sort of like an onion – but it doesn’t make me cry.
