more impressions from NYC…

gorrilla baby in Bronx. futurism in guggenheim. dinosaurs and meteors in museum of natural history. the dark waterfalls of ground zero. les miserables. statue of liberty, arm still raised high. rockefeller heights. walks through the park. sprechen some german and hungarian for a smile. struggling to keep up with Drew’s long stride. long conversations bridging the space between us.

NYC impressions

fully globalized metropolis. more green than expected. urban hiking. subway thunder. central nervous system of consumer culture (time square). naturally sifts out the elderly, families and obese. best donut ever. archive of human history and art.

Loving the colors of summer 2014 in MN

Some days this song is the quickest route to gratitude.

~ A delightfully mellow rendition of Monty Python by Alexander Stamatis

Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
That’s orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it’s reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the ‘milky way’

Feeling small :)
