Good Night New York Citiy

I can totally understand why one falls in love with this pulsating city, love and hate are sometimes so close. She can make you or ruin you but nevertheless she is one of a kind. A city that never sleeps, Frank Sinatra sang in a hymn to her, "If you can make it there, you make it anywhere. "

He does not ask much of us, merely a thought of Him from time to time, a little act of adoration, sometimes to ask for His grace, sometimes to offer Him your sufferings, at other times to thank Him for the graces, past and present, He has bestowed on you, in the midst of your troubles to take solace in Him as often as you can. Lift up your heart to Him during your meals and in company; the least little remembrance will always be the most pleasing to Him. One need not cry out very loudly; He is nearer to us than we think.

Busy for the last few rays of sun

“We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.”
“How happy we would be if we could find the treasure of which the Gospel speaks; all else would be as nothing. As it is boundless, the more you search for it the greater the riches you will find; let us search unceasingly and let us not stop until we have found it.” 
― Brother Lawrence

Tranquility

Tranquility

My eyes are never tired of watching the colors change, the ocean expanding towards the horizon and the gently curling of the waves onto the shore. Patiently they roll the bigger corals and shells until they split and mix with the fine sand. One is never too grown up not to search for treasures, like the perfect shell or the eventual beach glass ...

B&W in a Colorful City

B&W in a Colorful City

For many years I had a grudge against New York.

Mainly because we had to visit with the kids being small and I thoroughly believe it is a city for grown ups. Since last fall I fell in love with her again and find her amazing, always changing, never resting, challenging and demanding. All attributes I am open to and so here is my view of New York in B&W, which I love, by the way...

Musee Rodin Paris

I'm just going to go ahead and say it: Paris has more museums than one could ever cover in a life time. That being said, it's hard to choose favorites and before this trip to Paris I always named Musee d'Orsay as my absolute favorite, because of it's vast collection of impressionist art, which happen to be my favorite. Now I can say that I have two new, less known favorites: Musee Rodin and Musee Nissim de Camondo

Day at Dia Beacon

Dia Beacon Museum New York

A few weeks ago Shreya, Helena, Chelsea and I decided to take a break from the city and head up to Dia Beacon in upstate New York. My parents recently went, so I was really excited to see what the fuss was about.

As soon as we got there we were greeted by the incredible blossoms and the nature and art was incredibly peaceful. 

My favorites were the Richard Serra pieces that you could walk around in, I was always suprised by the way he shaped his massive sculptures on the inside.

The perfect peaceful day away from New York City!

 

Tartinery

Tartinery

April seems to be the month of birthdays in my friend group. For my room mate Diya's birthday we went to Tartinery in Nolita. Their menu is based on the French concept of Tartines, or open faced sandwiches. You choose your type of bread and then order a massive amount of different tartines. They were all delcious, but I think my favorite was probably the Croque Monsieur, because let's be honest, a melted cheese sandwich is always a winner.
