Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

A Lime Tree Grows in Manhattan

A lot of people see New York City as this big, impersonal metropolis.   That's not how I see things at all.  New York is simply a series of little neighborhoods, block by block, that end up being one of the biggest cities in the world.

As I passed by, I noticed this lime tree which is thriving on 51th Street.  They must really have babied this tree during the winter of 2010, when there were several major snow storms.

I heard a clip-clop, a sound you wouldn't think you'd hear in New York City, with its typical city song of sirens and blaring horns.

And then another:

and then this comforting message
And God really was calling me.

And at the next corner, this restaurant

That means, "everything is going well."

And so it was...everything IS going well.

Oh! You make NYC actually look lovely and like fun. Might just have to go there someday afterall (I've only lived in New York State for 18 years.... these things take time. heh.) So glad you had a great time! Thanks for your emails, too. :) Blessings, Debra
