In the indigo glow before the Dawn, dievca watched the stars twinkle over the NYC skyline. she had just finished going into a deep read of an NYT Article:
As a youngster who recently reached her 50’s dievca was part of the initial target audience for the show. she has fond memories of the classics: Rubber Ducky, 5 People in My Family, etc. Apparently, people who worked on the show or were guest stars had/have some impressive resumes, which at 3 years old – one does not care about…. The catchy tune which teaches you to count? That’s an important piece.
If you are a ‘Little’, in the demographic of dievca or a parent the article above may bring you Joy to read — just give yourself some time to click through all the musical links for a fine ride.
“True friends are like bright sunflowers that never fade away, even over distance and time.”
Marie Williams Johnstone
An unexpected pleasure in the middle of NYC. dievca grew up with a neighbor who grew large sunflowers in their backyard – it is a childhood pleasure to see one. There is a second sunflower that is so heavy with seeds, the head is drooping.
Killing time while waiting for a friend to fly into Lisbon…dievca wandered Oriente.

3 Euro = coffee and an egg custard filled croissant
I didn’t know why the croissant was squashed and had powdered sugar on it.
It didn’t matter – it got me going.
Is it the tide? Is it a dry dock?
Or is it a big problema?

The Altos dos Moinos Lisbon metro stop is on the Blue Line. The station opened to the public in 1988 and is designed by architect Ezequiel Nicolau with the plastic interventions of the painter Julio Pomar.
Using graffiti as an artistic expression, Júlio Pomar honored four figures of Portuguese letters;
Camões, Bocage, Pessoa, and Almada.
The work of a year of drawing resulted in the plastic animation of the station’s walls and an exhibition organized by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s Center for Modern Art in 1984 entitled “1 Year of Drawing, 4 Poets in the Lisbon Metropolitan”.
João Castel-Branco Pereira, in his work “Arte-Metropolitano de Lisboa”, describes the emphasis the painter wanted to impress on each poet and the iconography he used; Camões “warrior and gallant, memories of a poetically fictional homeland history, in duels, medieval, etc.
