Beautification of Subway stops: Gates Avenue, Brooklyn

One of 4.5 bathrooms (yes, I know!  It doesn't have a soap dish yet.  But one has to get exactly the Correct Soap Dish!  This bathroom is a beautiful grey and white, although it doesn't look like it here.  It also is a fairly large bathroom--I guess I have to spring for a wide-angle lens like all those other people!

Oh yes.  Indoor plumbing!  What a gift, even without soap dishes and towel
racks!

Mission for the day (should you choose to accept it):

1.  Enter into a bathroom; one with tub or shower.  Avoid gas stations, for
example.
2.  Revel in the beauty and convenience of Tile!  Think what a mess the
average shower might make without it.
3.  Check out the very simplicityof a water repellent floor!  Nothing
fancy, just tile, tile, showers, water, toilets with double flush, maybe a
mirror!!!!  A mirror.  What an amazing thing.

No place is more beautiful at night than the view  from the Williamsburg Bridge.

Find Me, I Am Lost!

Find me. I am lost within a fleeting instant
I wasn’t going in, I swear I wasn’t
Not until I found you just a foot away
swimming with laughter
Find me. I am lost without a compass
no roots holding me along the bottom
no way to find the hanging strap
I am lost without a mossy crevice
Look for me again along the empty places
I wasn’t going in, I swear I wasn’t
I didn’t mean to get so far and never find a rudder or a raft 
I didn’t mean to go so far without my safety line
I wasn’t going in, but now I swear I would

Washing Away the Cares of This World

Meet Sea, our newest water friend.   We were walking along the East River preparing to cast bread into the waters to begin a new chapter in life, and out of nowhere came Sea!  Sea loves to play Air Catch

Player 1 prepares to cast a slice over the rail. We have found that casting away the turmoils of life is so much more beneficial if it also nourishes the creatures of the Sky as well as the Earth.
