In the midst of it

 Out of the cab window -- art on a tour bus
with Time's Square art reflected on the window.
Art is everywhere in New York.  It matters.
I have to get a small notebook today because I
haven't been drawing this amazing city, and
that's just wrong.
View from the bank -- a girl getting her
photo taken at the Love sculpture on
Avenue of the Americas.
But there is more to art than just making it --
there's observing and believe me my eyes,
my ears and my heart are going wild drinking
in this glorious place.
Lunch yesterday in the Rock Café in front of 30 Rock.
Behind the statue carved into the granite is a quote from Aeschylus
that makes sense here: 
“Prometheus, Teacher in Every Art, Brought the Fire 
That Hath Proved to Mortals a Means to Mighty Ends.”

So here are some images from our time here.
Do yourself a favor, and drive, hitchhike, fly,
take a train, but come to New York.
St. Patrick's Cathedral
Have a loving-New York Day.
