~tangible and intangible~
dievca has watched this “thing” grow in the Hudson Yards for the past year.
The word “Vessel” never came to her mind…
“The Thomas Heatherwick–designed structure has been controversial, as some have likened its shape to a doner kebab, while others believe it could be New York’s Eiffel Tower.”
~Nick Mafi, Architectual Digest
Her free tickets to the “Vessel” are for today at 10:00 am – she will let you know how it goes~ (i.e. coronary from climbing all the stairs, stress from the crowds, confusion at the design.)
Note: Master didn’t want to go — he needs to get work done, so he’s waiting until you don’t need tickets.
What dievca is wearing:
After the Vessel, she is hopping on the 7 train to Grand Central where she will catch the Metro-North to Garrison. The Arden Point-Hudson Highlands State Park offers a simple 3.7 mile hike. Weather is showing no rain and temperatures up to 58F / 15C. Should be nice!

The Russian photographer Lovec Snov is known for creating an absolutely disturbing atmosphere through his images with an alluring twist. He creates surrealistic dark environments permeated by a lot of sensuality, eroticism and mystery – all without losing elegance. This combination of elements results in extremely unusual visuals that intrigue our eyes and senses.

dievca’s brother did a phenomenal job of finding three excellent and local caregivers to take care of their Parents. dievca’s second brother is MIA (“Call me with updates” — yeah, FU – I’ll drop everything to call you with updates…).
dievca helped get her Mom’s colitis under control and Dad eating more calories/water to function (something about not wanting to urinate more). It’s not perfect, but a good start.
As in all systems, dievca predicts breakdowns:
- dievca’s Dad being an a** to the caregivers and they quit
- or the caregivers finding another position
- Mom’s colitis driving everyone batty
- Their own Family/Home challenges
But dievca isn’t going to borrow trouble for the moment, she’s going to milk this respite for all its worth. That, and figure out the brand of pillow she slept on – her neck felt better and her arms didn’t go numb at her Parent’s house…
Good Morning to you and may you see the Light of Day, too. XO
Curves are worth the risk of discovery.
BLAND as the morning breath of June
The southwest breezes play;
And, through its haze, the winter noon
Seems warm as summer’s day.
The snow-plumed Angel of the North
Has dropped his icy spear;
Again the mossy earth looks forth,
Again the streams gush clear.
The fox his hillside cell forsakes,
The muskrat leaves his nook,
The bluebird in the meadow brakes
Is singing with the brook.
“Bear up, O Mother Nature!” cry
Bird, breeze, and streamlet free;
“Our winter voices prophesy
Of summer days to thee!”
So, in those winters of the soul,
By bitter blasts and drear
O’erswept from Memory’s frozen pole,
Will sunny days appear.
Reviving Hope and Faith, they show
The soul its living powers,
And how beneath the winter’s snow
Lie germs of summer flowers!
The Night is mother of the Day,
The Winter of the Spring,
And ever upon old Decay
The greenest mosses cling.
Behind the cloud the starlight lurks,
Through showers the sunbeams fall;
For God, who loveth all His works,
Has left His hope with all!
John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
Book ’em Danno, Muder One- they slayed the FW ’19 runway!
