Trump International Hotel and Tower

and only in NYC,
and only next to Central Park,
and only Trump...
and who died and left him King of anything and everything in NYC?! ;-)

but I read somewhere that some investors in one of his properties were wanting to pull out.

peeping out :)

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

Crepe Myrtle in full bloom. What a difference 4+ years make?! I'm so grateful for the beauty and pleasure my house has given me. The grass is greener, the blooms purdy-er! Right Jane!? ;-)

Voices at Grand Central Station

Heading uptown now just as the shifts are changing to Grand Central Station....and all these voices keep on asking me to take them to Grand Central Station. I want to stand beneath the clock just one more time...I guess you never really are all alone. I made my way to 42nd streeet, lit a cigarette and stared down at my feet and imagined all the ones who stood here waiting at Grand Central Station. The faces of the missing are all I see and tomorrow I'll be back there working on the pile ... and before my job is done there's one more trip I'm making to Grand Central Station.

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.

Passionate Kisses & Anticipation

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.

Goodnight New York

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.
