Sweet song, living on and walk in the park

Bob Marley "Three Little Birds"

- Seen in the East Village, New York City, last Saturday. My sister, who loves sweet songs, was taken with this sign and so I photographed it and emailed it to her. She says she will print it out and put it on her refrigerator to smile at every morning.

In memory of Ella - May her rebellious spirit live on

- One in a long series of memorial benches in Central Park West near Strawberry Fields. Another was dedicated to a woman named Elizabeth, who passed away in 2004 at the age of 43: Zizi in the Sky with Diamonds.

The lake in Central Park West, near Strawberry Fields

- A walk in the park with family. I lagged behind because I kept offering to take pictures of couples with their camera. I sure loved my time in New York, can you tell? :)

Have a lovely weekend my friends, and I hope you take time to smile at the rising sun. xo

That's a beautiful photo of Central Park. It was snowing heavily during our trip to NY.

...and here's to the rebellious spirit!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Have a super smiling-at-the-rising-sun weekend!

A poem a poem
my kingdom
for a poem

No little birds
ran through my head
No memory benches
have I set on I said

No park have I walked in
No pictures did I take
My kingdom is worth nothing
for no poem did I make

Joe -

Yes - here's to Ella! Have a wonderful weekend, Joe!

You were first indeed! Where was FB this a.m.? I posted about 30 minutes later than usual - maybe that was it.

lg -

I have tons more, but I liked this one the most. Thanks for the compliment. :)

Sage -

I always see couples taking pictures of each other and like to offer to take one of them together.

Talon -

I will, my friend, and you, too. :)

Mama Zen -

Thank you! It did come out nice.

Ellis -

Looks as if you did to me. :) Thank you for my poem!

What a feel-good post and I love the sign (and the song!) and the beautiful view of NY. Wow, do I miss it!!

Riot Kitty said...

Nice post...love Central Park. I have and continue to make many happy memories there.

Meredith said...

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Lynn. And I love to imagine you walking along, taking your sweet time, offering to photograph the couples along the way. :)

I like the street scene you captured with that bird song sign!
Cool to see those benches all over. Gives nwew meaning to "Strawberry Fields Forever." We have those benches all over the bluffs by the main beach here.
Nice of you to take pics for folks! You're a good shot, too! Bet no ones head got cut off...
Nuce pic of the pond in the park! (was it cold there?)
Have a good week-end too!

It was so great of you to offer to take photographs of couples. I believe I'm going to start volunteering when I see tourists with cameras. I wish someone would offer to take a picture of me and Ron.

I love that happy little chalkboard birdie!

Lulu -

I really loved it there - more than I expected to.

Riot Kitty -

That's nice and I hope to do the same.

Meredith -

My southern ways continued there - no need to rush around. :)

Snaggle -

It was cold there, but no colder than here. Somewhere in the 30s that weekend.

Granny Annie -

It's a nice thing to do, I think - it is evident when they are taking turns taking pictures of each other.

FB -

Me, too. :)

I think I live in NY in my heart of hearts.

Jannie -

I've got about 700 more - I figured it was time for a break this morning. Thank you - I loved my time in NY.
