Throwback to a lovely summer day in Capri, Italy
.
Snapped this a couple of years ago during a visit to Italy where my sister in-law and hubby took us around the country. This weekend it will be their turn to visit the US. So excited for new adventures! 🎈

The beauty of the unexpected lies within the surprise of the momentum, not only at its tipping point, but also within all the moments waiting.

A pleasant surprise to see this view of the Manhattan Municipal Building from Battery Park City, New York City
.
The 40-story Manhattan Municipal Building was built to accommodate increased governmental space demands after the 1898 consolidation of the city’s five boroughs.
.
On the top are three tiered drums on top of another, flanked by four smaller pinnacle turrets symbolizing the four boroughs joined to Manhattan.
.
At the very top is the 25-ft high Civic Fame statue, the second largest after the Statue of Liberty. Made of gilded copper, she carries various symbolic items including a crown with five turrets symbolizing the five boroughs.

A slice of TriBeCa, New York City

Flashback to last Saturday’s #SummerStreets in Union Square, New York City
.
The structure at the back is Metronome, a public art installation funded by the developers of One Union Square South for $4.2 million in 1999.
.
The artwork consists of several sections, including a round circular void from which puffs of white steam are released throughout the day, and a clock made of large orange LED digits, called The Passage, which displays the time in 24-hour format.
.
The rose-colored structure near the bottom right is a 31-foot sculpture by Dale Chihuly. The Rose Crystal Tower is on display in Union Square through October this year.

Trying to shelter from the summer heat in Times Square, New York City
.
The structure the people are seating on is part of the public art by Mel Chin entitled Wake. It represents parts of a shipwreck modeled on the USS Nightingale.
.
It is part of a two-part mixed reality art installation. With the app Unmoored, the work presents a sunken shipwreck which rises to the surface of an imaginary flooded Times Square.
.
Mel Chin: Wake and Unmoored is on view in Times Square until Sep 5, 2018.

He was still too young to know that the heart’s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good, and that thanks to this artifice, we manage to endure the burden of the past.

The thing about light is that it really isn’t yours; it’s what you gather and shine back. And it gets more power from reflectiveness; if you sit still and take it in, it fills your cup, and then you can give it off yourself.

And how loving and accepting yourself, even when society is telling you that you don’t deserve love, truly is a gift you give the world, not just the person in the mirror. I thought that was beautiful. And important.
