I saw a Broadway musical titled “Once On This Island.”  Afterwards, I made a “once in a lifetime” trip to the Caribbean.  I traveled to the beautiful Saint Martin.  Now, I have an “island getaway” closer to home:)  Randall’s Island Park does not have beaches or palm trees.  Yet, a walk along this path is like spending a few minutes in paradise!  (Photo taken on July 17, 2015)

“You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.” (Paulo Coelho, Author)  Historically, the Hell Gate section of the East River has been considered treacherous.  I observed it from the safety of Randall’s Island Park:)  This image can be viewed as a symbol of the sometimes turbulent journey of life.  “Love is the river of life in the world.” (Henry Ward Beecher, 19th Century Clergyman)  (Photo taken on March 10, 2015)

This is the photo I’m most proud to have ever taken. My first time seeing my favorite bands. But Florence was something special. I still can’t believe I saw her live. It seemed like something impossible but it happened. And she spotted me and pointed me with her magical finger. All their set was excellent. I still have dreams about that magical day.
Florence + The Machine live at Governors Ball Music Festival. June 5th, Randall’s Island Park, NYC.
