Images of a Weekend


For all the horror that winter brings in Manhattan, she certainly makes up for it in June. The city is happy, the energy is good, and behind every turn awaits an explosions of flowers, artists, farmers market harvests, and the sparkling sunlight. The Hudson glitters like a canary diamond and, for once, even the garbage trucks seem to hum quietly to themselves while lovers quarrels are called to a truce in place of strolls through the park in all the quiet pleasures of life.

I went to the farmers market, I walked Riverside Park, I explored Gotham Market and learned that rice crispy treat ice cream is a thing and it’s amazing. I started watching the 2nd season of Chef’s Table (one of my all time favorite food shows) and enjoyed my new Diptyque candle that smells of home cooked Madeleines. This I photographed {above} with my Monica Rich Kosann locket and a memento from one of the sweetest moments of the weekend — when I stumbled upon a poet writing poems for donation which he bases on any theme you told him. I asked him to make me a poem on Provence and this is what he wrote…

The image need not be imagine

it’s beautiful as it is

The people need not be questioned

they’ve an honest way to live

Give to the land and in return

the land gives back to you

It’s funny how we go so far

to learn the truth

Central Park Summer

Central Park (18)

Paddle boats gliding by, paths that wind around until you emerge upon a serene view, nature so lush in the middle of our busy city you would think you were miles away from it all. I love Central Park. For four years I lived on its edge, watching it through all the seasons and escaping into it on evening walks. I was so happy to see her again on this summer afternoon when the air was thick and laughter distant…

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. – e. e. cummings

The Key to the Park

Tucked away in this downtown neighborhood of Manhattan is a quiet city garden with it’s sweet little paths, wooden bird houses and manicured gardens… the only trick is finding a key to get in.

Private to its surrounding residents, Gramercy Park is an unchanging quiet oasis within an ever changing bustling city…

Up the Hudson River Line

A ride along the Hudson River with my new bike, discoveries of Manhattan’s quiet treasures- the Little Red Lighthouse, Grant’s Tomb, Riverside Park and the 91st Street Garden (hello You’ve Got Mail) made for a beautiful Saturday ride and unforgettable memory of this day I shared with my Father…
