Flight

Where I waved at the sky 
And waited your love through a February sleep, 
I see birds swinging in, watched them multiply... 
Like beauty spots marking a still perfect cheek. 
I see them bending the air, slipping away, for what birds seek. 
-From "The Balance Wheel" by Anne Sexton

Morning at the former Princeton Inn, a 1920s hotel (now student residence) overlooking a spot where the British made an almost-last stand in 1777. Enjoy your weekend!

¡¡Fantástica foto!! Es una imagen muy bien encuadrada, una luz suave, la desnudez de los árboles, los pájaros volando… todo esta en su sitio, muy bien.
El texto de Anne Sexton, me gusta, ¡como no!.
Un saludo, Ángel

Thanks for this lovely image to take us into the weekend Lulu, so much history surrounding this very spot, it always amazes me to think about it.
p.s. we have been lucky so far thankfully in WA regarding fires, but I feel with the heat we are experiencing it's only a matter of time unfortunately..

Wonderful choice of verse to go with that idyllic scene. I wonder if the redcoats were playing bowls.

Tranquil and serene .... Amazing to think this is just a short distance from hustling-bustling New York.
