just aspiring to do and be better...
Oh wow, I love those chimneys.Admittedly a though pops into my head about the poor bugger who has to clean them.I end up back from head to foot as does the rest of my house every time I get the urge to stick something up mine and dislodge all the murky contents.The first time I did it I got rained on with desiccated dead rat corpses so while I love the exterior of them I have misgivings about the interior LOLSarah, British mum to a mini Italian nationalist in deepest, darkest Lomellina.
All I can say is, Look up! Waaaaay up!
The sky is blue! It is sometimes really hard to count one's blessings during difficult times, but you have a lot of friends and we are all cheering for you! Best wishes!
I'm thinking you'll learn to love them. You'll be able to watch the birds that come around them - how the clouds look floating past them. I see a theme forming here. I really do. Change is fascinating. It gives us something different to look forward to every single day.
That is not too bad an outlook. You are really high up in the world. I think you will get used to it.Nuts in May

I've just been catching up with the last month or so of your blog (sorry for not visiting 'tween times)and have just caught up with goings-on. From reading your blog, your friends are obviously there for you and there are many of us out here in blog-land thinking of you too. I know it won't help an awfull lot, but my thoughts are with you and I'm sure you're strong enough to get through this.Have you thought about investing in a paint-ball gun and a rainbow box of colours? You could have some real fun "brightening up" those chimneys!
A time and a place to plan ahead. You just got rid of all that dead space and here you are looking at new stuff!
The fire escape looks like ribbon winding down in the wind :-)Happy weekend.jj
The top photo has a wonderfully nostalgic look for me. It's very much like the view I'd see out of my parents' bedroom window from the apartment where I grew up in Montreal. It's jarringly similar. I love it.
I like it too, Saz! The picture of the fire escape in particular looks like the set of a would-be musical. All we need are youths capering about, singing about being a Jet!
I have a great NYC view from the living room of my apartment but my bedroom window faces a pigeon festooned brick wall, I envy you.BTW, congratulations on the smooth move. I have never risen chipper after an evening of gin, nor could I ever hope to find my dongle thingy. You are clearly a staunch character.XD
Hi darlin', hope mum's day did not turn out to be too traumatic for you...love the view from your window-and it is true-the spiral staircase does look as if it is straight out of Westside Story, and the chimney-don't see workmanship like that these days. Talk soon.
Absolutely charming!!!! Such character is sure to delight you each and every day! So very, very happy for you!!! Love you so very much, Janine XO
Love the bricks ... and the chimneys .. it quite interesting a view ...
As some have mentioned - Wow that's one very blue sky. Lovely.
I truly do love city scenes of that sort. Thanks for sharing it, Saz!
Yes, it's YOUR view. I like it, too.xoerin
It looks like a wonderful place.
I do like that view. Steps upwards symbolising you moving upwards in terms of happiness and peace of mind.xxx
That staircase is really amazing.How's things?So glad to be back on line :)Sx
You cannot imagine how happy I am for you to be in your new home and can start anew, and with such pretty outlook at that! Love those chimneys! Hugs,M.
I love the view, you could image your new place being your secret hideaway and then indoors fill it with flowers and plants xx
