Love me

The huge city of New York

(I was there in February)

Seems to do nothing but reflect back itself

In its hard, shiny surfaces.

Yet, underneath its exterior,

You can find small signs of tenderness —

Like a tree trunk snuggled in a scarf of love;

And the faded yet vibrant beauty of an old emergency phone

Graced with stickers of love.

I’m away in the mountains of Norway for work and won’t be able to get around to your blogs for a few days.

  2. Great reflection Fi. Wishing you safe and enjoyable travels in beautiful Norway – I have very happy memories of staying in a little timber cabin located in the middle of an apple orchard high on the slopes of the Hardangerfjord; looking down at a ferry on the water which seemed the size of a matchbox !! Fabulous experience – thanks for reviving this memory, for hosting blogs, sharing your images and visitng my blog!

  7. Gorgeous views of two sides of The City! (I always gasp when I remember that you actually have a “day job” in addition to your beautiful family and this lovely lovely blog — you are really a Superwoman!) — and we are the lucky ones to share your talent.


  8. New York typically isn’t associated with fragility and tenderness – all more special to find and convey them, as you did!

    Thank you for sharing, and greetings from Tel Aviv πŸ™‚


  9. I liked this quote from your blog Fi – “reflect back itself

    In its hard, shiny surfaces.” That’s exactly what big city’s do! Great description and photos. I like the love signs too – Dave
