I’ve been away for a week, back in New York for the first time since I moved last winter. The trip was crowded with family events, so I had limited time to walk Manhattan streets and visit favorite places (ah, the pizza, oh, the pastries). My brain has been overflowing with impressions. Ten months ago I left New York for a very different part of the world, and going back provided an opportunity to examine the differences. Then last night, coming “home” to the Pacific northwest presented additional opportunities to compare and contrast. My mind spins. Somehow this image of a clutch of tiny cyclamen, taken in August at Kubota Gardens in Seattle, feels like a balm for my tumultuous mind.
So I’m starting here with an intermission of sorts, and then I will begin the task of sorting through the photographs and impressions of my trip and see what to post next.
