{nyc – through the eye of my camera phone}

17 Jul

i am working on a new volume of “memories in manhattan” and will post one next week… in the meantime, here’s a post about new york to keep the theme going 🙂


i took a trip new york in june… i had been wanting to go back for a visit for quite some time, as it had been about 5 years since i had been there. often times, i think part of me wants to live there again, so i was eager to experience the city once more to see how i felt about being there.

i had a wonderful trip, as i figured i would. the weather was a little ridiculous – as in sweltering hot. but outside of that, it was nice to feel the energy of that amazing city, again. new york has a way of making you feel on top of the world; as if the whole place belongs to you. as an introvert, it’s strange to me that i can be surrounded by people but still feel like i’m in my own little bubble. the “hum” that is always in the background doesn’t feel distracting to me… it’s a strange dichotomy that i have always appreciated.

all that said, i think i realized that i do not wish to live in a place like new york again. i long for a country life – on a farm somewhere, growing food and having lots of animals. of course, that may change – after all, we are human and our desires come and go as we move through life.

it was wonderful to be in new york once more and to walk around and take the subway and just feel the energy… i immediately settled back in to the “way of life” there and even had people asking me for directions – and i knew them! that’s also a good ego boost.

i didn’t pick up my camera too much… i guess because since i lived there for so long, i took so many pictures already and this time i just wanted to kind of experience it in a different way. of course, i did have my camera phone with me – so i captured a lot of snapshots with it.

here is a gallery of fotos from my trip – i hope you enjoy! :

 

until next time…

once upon a time in february it was 70 degrees, and I walked around a lake in a t-shirt…

walkaroundthelake-1walkaroundthelake-3

along the way, i spotted lots of beautiful and interesting things… like naked trees and cracks in the earth…

walkaroundthelake-18walkaroundthelake-19

like, crazy amounts of cracks… like the earth is erupting from below!..

walkaroundthelake-5walkaroundthelake-6

along the way, i also spotted crazy amounts of geese… walking around, and walking on ice…

walkaroundthelake-23walkaroundthelake-25

and speaking of ice, i spotted parts of the lake that were still frozen and parts that were melting…

walkaroundthelake-7walkaroundthelake-8

it was a lovely site… the wind blew crazy in my face and yet the sun on my face kept me crazy warm…

{march madness!}

18 Mar

…just kidding… kind of.  it’s mostly a play-on-words… kind of.

hey gang – hope all is well. i don’t know about you, but i am so beyond ready for spring. warmer days, open windows, sandals, tulips, etc… aren’t you?! i know i have readers from all over the world… and i often find myself wondering, “what is the weather like where YOU are?!” 😉

…does anyone else feel all wonky for like a good week or so after the time-change happens?! it doesn’t matter if it’s in the spring or fall, my being just tends to feel it one way or another. however, i so welcome the extra light with open arms!

anyway, here are some snaps from my haps in march –

march2015-20

the southwest has been sunny and warm during the past week or so… and you better believe i’ve been trying to take advantage of it!

march2015-26

and i’ve been stopping to smell the cherry blossoms, too! mmmm,mmmmmmmm!

my awesome new boss recently took us out for lunch at a cool local spot, and i was recommended this amazing dish which was absolutely delicious! …and i completely i devoured the whole thing… with little effort!

i see lots of vines growing along walls where i walk… i find them to be beautiful.
