The sparkles on her hat

Were clear from where I sat.

So sketch away I did

As she peered through her lid.

The weather’s gone from hot to cold,

It’s La Niña’s work I’m told.

Too bundled up to move your head?

You should have stayed at home in bed!

Those eyes have seen a thing or two,

Though the thoughts stay hidden from view.

We humans are more alike than not,

Compassion is really all we’ve got.

Peace and quiet is a grapple,

When you live in the Big Apple.

So bring a book when you’re en route,

And you’ll enjoy more your commute.

For an interesting profile,

Why not sport this cool hairstyle.

Man buns these days are the rage,

If you’re of a certain age.

It doesn’t take much to be a bag lady.

Just a hat, bag and a look that’s shady.

Course if you’re a man you’ll find it more hard.

(The lady part means going an extra yard.)

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

The New York City Ballet fall season started up today, and I headed back to Lincoln Center for a full day of rehearsals on Swan Lake.  The pace at NYCB is always in high gear (opening night is tomorrow!), and to top off 5  1/2 hours of orchestra rehearsals, I then headed off to the Empire Hotel to support my husband who was acting as emcee for an evening of music and talk with some of the choreographers of the new works being put up this season.

Not being as youthful as I once was, I found myself fading fast as the evening wore on.  A big hint that I had reached my limit was when my black ballpoint pen ran out of ink and it felt to me like the world was ending.

Note to self: Get more sleep and carry around a spare black ballpoint pen!

I did manage this sketch of a patron listening in rapt attention to the music.  (She actually WAS wearing a striped shirt in shades of blue!)  So…

It’s all good!

She listened to the tune,

Which ended all too soon.

Then my black pen up and died,

And I left feeling fried.
