NYC miscellaney

 My sister-in-law in Times Square

I turned a corner and there it was – the famous tree at Rockefeller Centre

Do nothing by halves

 My New York home in the snow

 The beer cooler at the local drugstore

The auction room at Sotheby’s – where the drama happens

 Meghan at Sotheby’s departing with Dad and a copy of my book, so the buyer knows who he is and where he comes from. I cried. But also felt lighter.

Love this – a notice put up by “Friends of East 72nd Street Trees.” Amazingly, in New York’s concert of concrete, trees, and the birds in them, seem to do just fine.
