This shot was taken by my daughter Kate, when she
headed (way) north and sailed around the Svalbard Archipelago.
Now her father and I are making the same trip—we're
off to Norway tonight. I'm not sure what kind of Internet
connection I'll have up there above 80°n latitude,
so (for the first time in eight years), I'm putting the blog
on hold until I'm back home in a couple of weeks.
At that point, expect pictures of polar bears!
Meanwhile, as the song says, "see you in September."

And I love leaving mine on a sunny beach.
(These were made last year at sunrise on the
beautiful beach of Oak Island, North Carolina.)

at a food emporium I visited recently on
Long Island. I ate a banana on the way there,
so I could resist all the treats for humans
(starting with the baking-right-now donuts just
inside the front door and continuing
with lobster rolls and a fried-chicken bar a bit
farther on)—and just get the salad fixings I came for.

to do much of anything except chill
(or at least try to). Yesterday I
went out like mad dogs and Englishmen
and hiked about 5 miles in the midday
sun—and then wished I hadn't.
The actual temp was in the 90s, but
with the humidity more like 100+.

I'd like to join my brother and sister-in-law
here on their screened-in porch—just
sit back, drink something icy, and hope to
catch a breeze. Unfortunately, I have
waaay too much to do.
Hope your weekend is cool and relaxing.

Reflected in 140 Broadway: food trucks, office
workers, and Mark Di Suvero's sculpture
"Joie de Vivre," which sits at the entrance to
Zuccotti Park. (Remember when the Occupy
Wall Street folks camped out there?)
