Wish You Were Here - NYC

New York is a seductive mistress.
(All photos by LBG.)

And that's what I love so much about it.

Don't sleep, it whispers. And so you don't. Come down and see me, it whispers. I'm all dolled up for you. And so you grab your coat and go for a late-night walk and everywhere you look there are glittering tableaus...

...and muscular monoliths...

...and reminders that, in this town, enlightenment happens on the pavement.

While gazing through your window pane, 
you see the human struggle,
Framed.

I wish I was there, too *sigh*. My son, daughter in law and the grandchildren moved to the USA for two years and seem to be having a wonderful time. Plus we have three first cousins in New York!

..and you see courage, hope & beauty. NYC is my home town which rests deep in my soul. Hard live there, hard to leave there~ but so easy to love.

I still have yet to experience NYC. Can't wait to go.

Hoping that you'll be staying around this city long enough for some true spring time weather to arrive. Hoping to see the 60's turn into 70's.

Your photos are very fine and do catch the vibe.

Best wishes.

Thank you for your elegant justification for my obsession with Bloomsbury Life. This post is poinent because I survived 28 years in NY, some of that in the city, and the last ten in Oyster Bay. Cheers!
