inSPIREd Sunday


This is the early-18th-century organ in the
church of St.-Nicolas du Chardonnet.
You can hear it here.

The Weekend in Black and White


I saw these men in the Nyugati Railway Station,
in Budapest.  It could be a dramatic story, 

I suppose—or maybe (and I hope this is the case)
they were just two tired workers waiting
to catch their train and go home after a long day.

Weekend Reflections


I love the passages of Paris—wonderful
glass-roofed shopping arcades that date mostly
to the 19th century—and Galerie Vivienne 
is one of the most elegant of all.

Thursday Challenge—"young"


These jeunes Parisiens were out on a
promenade with their teachers.  Some of them
got the "stick-together" drill, but a few
petits garçons were just eager to get down
to the quai d'Orsay and run around.
Must be like herding des puces!

ABC Wednesday—O is for "oranges"


I'm not really that fond of oranges and never go 

out of my way to eat one, but for the 18 months I was 
pregnant with my two kids (well, closer to 19, 
thanks to Lila the Late), I had a strong craving and 
consumed hundreds (maybe thousands).
I can think of worse things.

Our World Tuesday


You'll find lots of wonderful art at the
Brooklyn Museum—even in the parking lot.

the blue hour


One of the reasons I choose to live in Brooklyn:
I have all the benefits
 of a huge 

metropolis a short subway ride away—but 
at the end of the day, this is my view.
