Photo and words from my niece from back in 2006. With today's heat, makes me long for a cold January day!
on the inside looking out.
OH it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!
Wouldn't that be cool if you looked through your peep hole one day and saw a fantasy world? Like Alice and Wonderland kinda deal. Ok maybe a little creepy, but still 'cool' none the less

Voices a photo by Nieve44/Luz on Flickr.
lyrics by Mary Chapin Carpenter and based on a true story of a worker who worked through the piles of debris at Ground Zero and heard the voices asking him to take them to Grand Central Station. I felt such a pull to this place while in NYC last week. I had always wanted to see this place and finally got the chance to do so all the while the MCC song was playing in my head.

I've been a fan of Mary Chapin Carpenter for many years and got the chance to see her perform live last summer in Austin. She's got a new CD, "Ashes & Roses" that'll be released this coming Tuesday and I cannot wait (anticipation) to download her new music. Her music and lyrics speak volumes to my heart and soul. Here's one of my all time fave songs from her, Passionate Kisses and some of the words really ring true for me at 50 something...
Yes, a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back isn't too much to ask...
Yes, would love to have a rock and roll band in my backyard-don't know that my neighbors would appreciate that though.
Yes, I hate pens that run out of ink--especially my favorite pen and I am picky about pens!
Yes, I demand cool quiet and time to think and those are moments that I treasure
and oh yes, passionate kisses from you.

This was a perfect way to end our visit to the Big Apple. Woke up wobbly this morning and feeling like I'm still riding on the subway/train. Guess it'll take a day or 2 to decompress. Glad to be home and think I'll crawl back into bed. OH, and Chulo has not let me out of his sight since we got home last night.
