A Pause

Due to complications from hitting my head, I'll be on hiatus for a spell.  Breathe in summer, breathe in light. Heal.

Wave Hill and Art

A nice jaunt to nearby Wave Hill in the Bronx yesterday. 

View of the Hudson River
Goliath Allium I think this was called 

These look like roses, don't they?

Near their small but pleasant cafe, a large room that once entertained famous musicians and celebrities including Mark Twain. 

Water garden
Compelling paths
And an art gallery

Where we were fortunate enough to meet the artist, Joiri Minaya, as she was working on an installation of her piece entitled #dominicanwomengooglesearch, an interactive display (look her up, so interesting) 

Plus mad crazy comfortable chairs to just sit and gaze at the sky.

My Hogwarts

A writing day at Manhattanville's Castle, old stomping grounds and a favorite place.

Love a chair with carved beasts

These quiet rooms 

And under the tree where it all started...

Really Tiny Homes

As seen on display at the Norwalk Public library in Connecticut. 

Max and pals

Tiny cats
Best for last.

On a walk yesterday by a serene seaside park, snapping shots of some appealing looking trees. Afterwards a woman comes up to me, very energetic, and says she noticed me taking photos and was it of poison ivy because she takes photos of it and goes to city hall to demand they rid the area of such danger etc and would I want to join her in her safety campaign ... Horribly cheerful to boot. Masks all sorts of sins, the relentlessly cheery. Ah well, I extricated myself and found some rose hips - now they are something to be cheery about!

Rose hips say summer to me
