Photo/ Dori Hartley/ Florida surf/ Jan 19, 2012
RETURN TO REALITY, back from a holiday, back to the snows of today...will have this photo to look back on a really splendid day, a reminder of why the ocean, the beach are so precious....
Thinking of leaving New York permanently for a warm breeze in January, a sand castle at the edge of the sea. Really serious about moving, but the larger reason is to be with my daughter, Dori, my granddaughter, Alex. That's what my visit was about. And to catch a few rays.
In the end, there's no landscape or environment that tops NY for me. Born and bred in the shadow of Yankee Stadium, toddling around the Metropolitan Museum when the Egyptian Wing was a mere twinkle, I have had a very strong arm restraining me from leaving.
But not so much anymore. Now my bones are cold quicker, and even though every store in the world is just across the street, I'm sort of willing to say good-bye to all that. For the opportunity to be very near my guys, (not the one in LA, I can't have everything), I seem to be on the verge of moving to that famous sunshine state. I had this urge six years ago. But kissed the New York ground when I returned from a visit. Will that happen again?
Now if I won the lottery, I could straddle both paradises!
Will keep you posted!!
