A beautifully sunny birthday in the City.....a glass of champagne with coffee at eleven.  September, ....soft September sunshine and ducks swimming on the river.  Reflection and shadow.  Slowly summer ebbs into cooler mornings and my city is quiet, the children returned now to school desks with new uniform begin to fill their  notebooks once more.  Solitary mothers stroll, perhaps relishing the peace.  Somewhere a piano plays a mellow melody and I want to take the day and preserve every particle of it!

'i thank You God for this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes'

Thank you so much Lesya! My birthday was on Sunday, but we went to visit the city on Tuesday to celebrate with a special lunch.

It does my heart good to know you feel uplifted, thank you so much for telling me!
