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!

Master beat dievca

He saw the first “Snowdrops” of the Season in the Shakespeare Garden, Central Park NYC. They saw these Snowdrops together on the High Line:

dievca spotted the Crocus’ first! On the High Line, in the rain:

The first flowers of Spring always bring a little bit of competition and a lot of Joy.

No looking back~

dievca is an “eBayer” – she buys and sells.  But with her Parents taking more of her time, dievca’s eBay listing practices have diminished. The “to be sold” items were piling up.

It took dievca more than two years to wrap her head around the idea of calling in an “online” consignment service to list her pile of stuff. This decision occurred immediately after selling a Hermes scarf for $350. That scarf sat on eBay for about 3+ years, 5 lowball bids, one sob story…
dievca doesn’t have the time to list items, cancel poor offers and she cannot keep the bigger items around until they sell. A silk scarf is one thing, but a leather jacket is another~

Solution?

Stepping away from being in charge of her item’s presentation and setting the listing prices was tough for dievca.  she had to mentally change her goal of getting the largest amount of money – to recycling items and clearing the closets.

It’s SPRING – time to clean.

At 9 am, a lovely lady came to dievca’s apartment and sorted through as many high-end items as dievca could find to sell.
Fendi, Missoni, Lanvin, Alaia, Moschino, Simone Rocha, Miu Miu, Sonia Rykiel, Michael Kors, Celine, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Manolo Blahnik, Repetto, Vivienne Westwood, Dries van Notan, Norma Kamali, etc.

After two hours, good conversation and coffee – 42 items left dievca’s apartment to be sold.
Cross fingers on the pricing…

Here’s the remnants:

dievca decided she is not going be a voyeur and watch what the items sell for ~ its too much. Whatever $ she gets, she gets.

The “leftover” pile has become one small bag of items to be listed on eBay – a much more manageable amount. Already a bag of mid-tier items was sold at Buffalo Exchange. There are pieces set aside for friends and the rest will be donated to Goodwill/ Housing Works.

All told, dievca got rid of about 90+ items.

And she’s not looking back!

Ode to the Equinox

dievca is feeling reborn in her submission. The Spring Equinox and ‘Worm’ Supermoon have jump started her closet clear out and renewal of presentation outfits for Master.
she is feeling the call to serve her Dominant.

Come slowly – Eden!

BY EMILY DICKINSON

Come slowly – Eden!
Lips unused to Thee –
Bashful – sip thy Jessamines –
As the fainting Bee –

Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums –
Counts his nectars –
Enters – and is lost in Balms.

Emily Dickinson, "Come slowly - Eden!"

The equinox will arrive at 5:58 p.m. ET on today, less than four hours before the full supermoon. In the Northern Hemisphere, the equinox is the official start of spring, but in the Southern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of autumn.

March’s full moon is sometimes called the “worm moon,” because according to folklore tradition, it occurs at a time when the frosty ground is melting and earthworms start to emerge.

The moon reached its closest point to Earth on Tuesday at 3:47 p.m. ET, but the moon won’t be full until Wednesday at 9:43 p.m. ET. The moon is usually about 240,000 miles away from Earth, but at perigee this month, it will come within about 223,300 miles of our planet, according to NASA

But what is an equinox? It’s the year’s first “equal night,” meaning that on Wednesday, we Earth-dwellers will see about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.

On the equinox, the Earth will also begin to tilt so that the North Pole gets more sun, making it spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the southern.  It officially “marks the turning point when daylight begins to win out over darkness,” according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.


Looking ‘Morning Goodness’ straight in the Eye!

Good Morning!
Wishing you an excellent week.
