It’s hard to believe that our vacation is coming to a close. We’ve had spectacular weather, oh-so-many delicious meals, and lots of opportunities to just rest and play. In fact, I’ve been spending so much time doing all of the above that I pretty much forgot to pull out my camera. Sometimes really being in the moment is the best medicine!
And when I’m back in the grind of work in the city, I plan to pull out these photos and give myself permission to dream again…
“How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.”
(Which, by the way, happens for us about once in a blue moon!)
But we lucked out last week with an invitation to dinner, along with a boat ride on the Hudson. Even better, the weather was sublime AND we even had a full moon. So, from the middle of the Hudson somewhere near Tarrytown, NY, here’s what life looked like on Sunday…
I’ve had a hectic two weeks – including playing 14 Wicked shows and a trio concert in Vermont – so tonight I am relishing having a teeny breather before we head off to Saratoga, NY for more fun with New York City Ballet. Escaping the heat and noise of the Big Apple is quite welcome at this time of year. Speaking of fruit, my appetite was piqued on my short stay last weekend with my mom in her cottage in New Hampshire.
Here’s what’s flourishing in her garden right now…
“I paint flowers so they will not die.”
Last week the strawberry moon rose over D.C. while I was in town performing with the New York City Ballet. The bad news is that our performance that night got out a bit too late for me to see the moon rising on the horizon. Even worse, the next night when we DID get out earlier I didn’t have my camera with me – you’ll just have to believe me when I tell you the moon that night WAS a fabulous salmon shade and looked ginormous!)
So that you can see I tried, here I am trying to capture the strawberry moon…
And here it is framed by the leaves of a tree.
“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”
“Every doorway, every intersection has a story.”
