Letter in the NYT (albeit anonymously)

My third, and probably last item to be published in the august New York Times. Have had two "Metropolitan Diaries" in over the years.

However, the canopy was replaced before my letter could appear. Doesn't matter; I'm glad it's back. We were without it which seemed like forever.

Easter on the E Train

Sunday, April 5, 2015—these little girls are so delighted with themselves and look so charming in their silky dresses and skirts, that they deserve to be recorded, even though they won't ever know about it. Can't decide which hat I like best, even though these hats are probably purchased already assembled and not original creations by the wearers, formerly a longstanding Easter tradition in New York City. They probably do not plan to watch Fred Astaire and Judy Garland in Easter Parade in the evening, either. In fact, they've probably never heard of Fred, Judy, or the movie itself. Or Irving Berlin. What they're missing!

"Du bist der Lenz"

It's been a long time since posting anything, but here we are on the first day of spring, supposedly, 2015. So it's appropriate to start over. Snow-capped Citibikes symbolize the end of a super-long winter. But the sun is out and, as the second-most-quoted English poet said, hope springs eternal. It's a nice, sunny day at 11:30 a.m., and the temperature has risen above freezing, so let's go!
