The Triborough Bridge, as viewed from Queens
In the far distance, the Empire State Building
This is the week I've been dreading. There have been some tough work moments -- and there will be many more -- and more prolonged dental work, but Buttercup survives. Our agency is having meetings throughout the city this week and one of my responsibilities is to coordinate our group's participation. We have a cooperative group, but there are still a lot of issues that we can't control, and generally I have a pounding headache, sore feet and an aching back by the time one of the meetings is completed. Tonight was an exception. Things went well and I got to eat some dinner, unlike the nights dinner is from a vending machine, and our part was completed by 10:00 PM. Hurray! Still there are two more to go and they could be the stuff of legends, but right now I am rejoicing.
My subway this morning skipped my stop because of track work and I found myself at a different station than usual, looking at the Manhattan vista. The top photo is the Triborough Bridge, which connects Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. It was renamed in 2008 and is now the RFK Bridge, but as Citifield where the Mets play will always be Shea Stadium, the RFK will always be the Triborough. The second photo is a building scene, but way in the distance there is a tiny spire, which is the top of the Empire State Building.
I hope your day held moments in which to rejoice, for pleasures and prayers great and small.
