Good morning from New York on a very, very chilly February 13.
As I type, I hear the wind blowing, and the radio has just told me that the temperature is 21 degrees F. By the time I leave for work in a few hours, it's going to be about 10 degrees. By the time time I return home from work this evening, the prediction is for about 5 degrees.
How I wish I could stay indoors all day long...and tomorrow, too. Instead, I'll remind myself that spring is not too far away and add lots of layers of clothing for my outdoor journeys, hoping the subway trains are running frequently.
In observation of Valentine's Day being tomorrow, I wanted to share a funny little assemblage that hangs on my kitchen wall.
Many years ago, I bent a wire coat hanger, added a dried tomato vine and tucked in a slip of paper found in a Chinese fortune cookie. It amuses me every day to see this little tangle. The paper fortune reads, "You will make changes for the better." It's a good fortune to read every day, and then contemplate the potential for the message's truth.
This still new year is going to be a time of changes for me. I look forward to sharing some developments with you all in the not too distant future.
Meanwhile, I thank you all for your visits and comments, and continue to marvel at the connections that blogging allows us to make.
May I also wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day!
