Saturday On The Sidewalk

18 Feb

My favorite place is whichever sidewalk is beneath my feet because I am just constantly fascinated by walking and looking and learning. If I’ve already walked a street five times, then the next five times I walk it looking up, and I learn something about the cornices. ~Danny Meyer

You would think that walking down the same old familiar sidewalks, day after day, would be boring. It never is. There is always something new to see or neighbors to talk to. Don’t even get me started on being coerced into drinking beer and sitting in a Mr. Larry’s and Ms. Sandy’s garage.

If you’re like the rest of the country, today is a beautiful, unseasonably warm day. Mother Nature is confused.

I can’t be accused of not being able to read the writing on the wall,  I also enjoy reading and admiring the writing and drawing on the sidewalk.

Looks like a little girl had a good time expressing herself.

Someone left a piece of chalk on the sidewalk. I could never resist chalk. I had to say hi. Playing is good.

Later, I found two lucky pennies. Hmmm? Someone trying to tell me something? Like, don’t quit your day job? Or, stop letting people walk all over you?

    Saturday was very warm and I was able to take a walk without freezing. Hoping we have an early spring in New York because last week’s snowstorm was brutal. I’m ready for the cold, snow, ice and sleet to leave.

    I Love the sidewalk quote. Sometimes I have to remind certain people that my parents did not raise me to be a doormat. You do have to put folks in check when they cross boundaries.

      I sure hope your weather warms up soon. It has been so beautiful here. And yes, sometimes those of us of tender hearts and loving souls tend to get walked on. We learn to get tough and resilient with age, have a good Sunday, my friend.
