It's Christmas Time in the City

Times Square at Twilight
There are no specific holiday decorations visible, but the red and green lights had a very festive look. 

Today was a much quieter day than yesterday, and I stayed in my neighborhood doing errands and taking a nice long walk. I had lunch with my college roommate and introduced her to our local Michael's. I bought tags and the makings for cards, which is my project for tonight. 

Wishes for a sweet and festive week!

I was so glad to get your comment right after publishing my post today. It is fun to know that even though we live across this wide country...on opposite coasts... we were doing almost the exact same thing at almost the same time. In fact I can smell your scented candle... can you smell mine? Good luck on your cards. I need to finish up mine too. Thanks for the peek of NYC. Have a good week my friend. Hugs, Lura

I was just reading about a young man who lost his sight at age 30 and then began painting. Here is a link to a piece of his art that reminds me very much of your photo above:
