The sights and sounds of NY –
Blinding sun glinting off the Hudson River by Riverside Park yesterday,
a rude heckler yelling “Yah! Go! Keep it up” as I did my jump-roping and “burpees” in the park,
Jews gathered in groups along the parkway path reading and singing in observance of Rosh Hashanah today,
the “fwap-fwap” of my Nike windbreaker as I braced head-first into the 30 mph wind gusts on my early evening walk,
and this curious seed pod I picked up, put in my pocket, (and only remembered when I laid on my side and thought my hip bone was going bad),
all led me to create this pendant rendering tonight:
I’m dedicating this rendering to my parents, who are celebrating their 42nd anniversary tonight.
